AGYU ISO ABotM
You: maker of artists books.
Us: aficionados of artists books.
The Art Gallery of York University is now accepting submissions to the second ever AGYU Artistsí Book of the Moment competition, aka the ABotM*.
Weíre fickle, I guess. It seems that only a few months ago we announced that Rob Kovitzís Ice Fishing in Gimli was the 2010 ABotM. We still like the books, Rob, but weíre in search of the next one. After all, it is the Artistsí Book of the Moment and the next moment is nigh. So, to everyone else out there, itís time to dust off that magnum opus (or parvum opus, weíre not picky) and send it on in. Our jury is standing by.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 10 January 2011
All submissions will be available for viewing in February at The DepARTment, as adjunct to an off-site AGYU exhibition of Ice Fishing in Gimli. The 2011 shortlist of ABotMs will be announced at the end of the exhibition, and then the finalist, the top of the ABotM 2011, will be revealed at our Spring exhibition opening at the Art Gallery of York University.
As with the 2010 ABotM, the winning entry will receive $1,500 CAD and our undying love [until next year].
