Interweaving Traditions: Bookbinding Across Cultures
On view April 23 – June 1
See the works by students of the Refugee Youth Project who created books as art objects through a yearlong creative process of bookbinding. Over the course of two years, local book artists facilitated bookbinding workshops that offered an opportunity for refugee youth to develop storytelling techniques and bookbinding skills related to their cultural traditions. Student book artists are from Bhutan, Nepal, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and the Congo. Victoria Timpo, a 2014 MFA candidate at the Maryland Institute College of Art, curated this exhibition as her master’s thesis project.
