POSTAL ARTIST BOOKS
Ellora Ateliê in Sao Paulo, Brasil, organizes an International Exchange Program for Paper Artists with Artist Books. The program is integrating the PapelArte/ArtPaper Interchange Art Project and is partially supported by IAPMA (International Association for Hand Paper Makers and Paper Artists).
During these Pandemic times, where all the world has stopped, and people have had the chance to think about their lives and the planet, artists have been incredibly involved in their creative processes, searching for answers and finding new solutions to exhibit their artworks. This project aims to create an opportunity for interested artists to exchange experiences through Artist Books created by the artist and then exchanged with another to be completed. In this way, distances will be reduced, and their books will travel to where they are not allowed to go just now. It is also a way to get closer to artists that one may not know but who will receive very special material created by the other. The concept is to exchange Artist Books with an artist from another country. Each book will be made by two artists. And all the received books will participate in the final exhibition in Brazil and form the International Artist Book Library. Our intention is to show this collection in other locations in the coming years.
