Expanded Artists’ Books: Envisioning the Future of the Book

Two $10,000 commissions will be awarded

The Center for Book & Paper Arts recently received an NEA Arts in Media grant in support of a new electronic publishing initiative, Expanded Artists’ Books. This grant will support an award of two $10,000 commissions for new artworks for the iPad.

We are seeking artist proposals for projects that will exist on the iPad and as physical books. Artists are challenged to explore ways in which the artwork can take both virtual and physical forms, examining how the interplay between the two can engender comprehensive, powerful expression. Proposal should address how the project manifests within these two modalities. The commissioned artist must have the capability to create/deliver the iPad experience, experience creating physical books not required.
