A Book About Death is moving to the Queens Museum for a special exhibition!
Selections from “A Book About Death” is an artists’ collaborative project conceived by collage artist Matthew Rose for the Emily Harvey Foundation in New York City where the original exhibition took place from September 10 - 22, 2009. Over 500 artists contributed 500 postcards each created from artworks made especially to create an unbound book about memory and death.
The exhibition has since traveled to the Otis College of Art and Design in LA, and to the Mobius Gallery in Boston, MA, as well as becoming part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the LA County Museum of Art Research Library. The Queens Museum is presenting a selection of cards from the exhibition and are also asking the public, both with mailed submissions and in an artist-led workshop, to create their own postcard about death and add it to the exhibition which runs from November 1 to 15, 2009.
Opening November 1st, 3-6pm
