This is part of a traveling exhibition of more than 100 artists’ books made by international artists from 24 countries. The books and broadsides in this exhibit were made in response to the  March 5, 2007 car bomb that exploded on Al-Mutanabbi Street, the ancient street of booksellers, poets and writers, located at the literary and cultural heart of Baghdad, Iraq. This exhibition, curated by Beau Beausoleil and Sarah Bodman, aims to bear witness to the events on Al-Mutanabbi Street, and to collectively affirm that the right to a free exchange of ideas and culture in public space is never to be taken for granted.

The Round Robin Books Workshop will be instructed by Scott McCarney.

In sport, a round robin is a tournament in which each contestant is matched in turn against every other contestant. For this workshop, artists will be the contestants matched, in turn, with circulating sheets of paper and given the opportunity to make their mark.

A variety of mark-making techniques are welcomed and encouraged (drawing, collage, frottage, tracing, transfers, stamping, etc.).

As the papers circulate, we will fold them into sections to define the pages and create our own itineraries through the book. The second half of the day will be spent learning a variety of binding options for finishing our books.

Each participant will have a hand in the creation of the edition and end the day with a personalized, one-of-a-kind copy.
