UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS/ 2013
Superstition 13 is a juried show which invites artists to investigate superstition and the esoteric. Exploring the original shadowy art – the inky arts of the book – Superstition 13 will bring to light many of the dark arts near and dear to printers, binders, and book artists.
Exploring the myriad ways in which superstitions affect our lives, artists are encouraged to submit book works which speak to the mysterious, the alchemical, the arcane – both written and unwritten. Opening on Friday, September 13, 2013 at the SF Center for the Book, Superstition 13 will give viewers a glimpse into individual artistic interpretations of superstitions and what that means for the artists who created each work. The exhibit will run for six weeks and close on Hallowe’en: Thursday, October 31, 2013.
Superstition 13 will also cast an eye to superstitions through the ages. Esoterica and ephemera will be on display alongside contemporary artists’ books. A four-color exhibition catalog of the show will be available for purchase.
Very superstitious, writing's on the wall,
Very superstitious, ladders 'bout to fall,
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin' glass
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past.
When you believe in things that you don't understand . . .
