In its third year, BOOKMARKS will again provide a stimulating platform for visitors to explore artists’ books and zines made by practitioners from across Scotland.
Exploring the artists’ book in its broadest sense, BOOKMARKS is a first stop for those interested in bookmaking as an artistic practice. Bookmarks will run this year on the 29th March, from 4-8 PM, with talks running earlier in the day. It is housed in the Sculpture Court, in Edinburgh College of Art’s Main Building.
BOOKMARKS focuses on academic study, exploring how artists’ books are used, promoted and created in educational settings. Featured artists and designers will include students, staff and alumni from Edinburgh College of Art (ECA), alongside those from other educational institutions in Scotland. To coincide with BOOKMARKS, ECA student group The Grey People who explore the spaces and overlaps between art and design have curated an exhibition of artists’ books from the ECA collection that will be on show in ECA library.
