Pop-Up Now! 

A National Juried Exhibition of Movable Books

Presented in Conjunction with The Movable Book Society’s Biennial Conference

Exhibition dates: September 2-25, 2010

Location: 23 Sandy Gallery, Portland, Oregon

THEME – Pop-up books captivate and excite the child in all of us. They come to life as three-dimensional works of art hidden inside the pages of a book. Pop-Up Now! is looking for handmade artist books that pop-up, move, slide, twirl, whirl, light up, or even sound off. This national, juried exhibition of handmade movable artist books will be held at 23 Sandy Gallery in conjunction with the biennial conference of the Movable Book Society to be held in Portland, September 23-25, 2010.

According to Wikipedia, “The term pop-up book is often applied to any three-dimensional or movable book, although properly the umbrella term movable book covers pop-ups, transformations, tunnel books, volvelles, flaps, pull-tabs, pop-outs, pull-downs, and more, each of which performs in a different manner.”

MEDIA – This exhibit is open to hand bound book arts related artworks created as either edition or one-of-a-kind. Artist books, sculptural books, book objects are all encouraged as long as the book has at least one interactive, movable or pop-up element. Your books can employ any medium, any style, or any size.

DEADLINE – Entries must be received by July 20, 2010.

Happy creating!
