New York City features 250 artists' books from the Al-Mutanabbi Project! 

I am pleased to announce the opening of the Al-Mutanabbi Project in NYC in 5 venues. Big thanks to The Center for Book Arts' for organizing this! I will be coming to NYC Sept 14-18 and speaking at the Center for the Book Arts on Sept 18, along with other book artists. Come join in this dialog!

Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here Project assembles artists' responses to the tragic loss of a cultural and intellectual hub in Baghdad that occurred on March 5, 2007, by a bomb explosion. Al-Mutanabbi Street had been the historic center of Baghdad bookselling, and the heart of the Baghdad literary community.

The exhibition features approximately 250 artists' books and 50 prints by artists from around the world, and was co-organized by Beau Beausoleil, Founder of the Al-Mutanabbi Street Coalition, and Sarah Bodman, Senior Research Fellow at the Center for Fine Print Research in Bristol, UK.
A comprehensive catalog accompanies the show.
