Sitting Room - Exhibition

Sitting Room has continued on to the Alsager Arts Centre, 4th December 2006 – 26th January 2007. MMU Cheshire, Alsager Campus, Hassall Road, Alsager, ST7 2HL

The setting is a carefully re-created Sitting Room complete with comfortable armchairs, standard lamp, wallpaper, coffee table and gramophone, inviting visitors to peruse the unique display of artist’s books. Within this familiar domestic scene, emphasis is placed upon the engagement between the book and the reader. Visitors are encouraged to choose an artist’s book from the bookcase, make themselves at home in the sitting room and enjoy this rare opportunity to handle and interact with the limited edition artists-made book works. Curators Tom Sowden and Lucy May Schofield, part of the 
Righton Press Group, based at Manchester Metropolitan University, conceived the idea for the show through a frustration of exhibiting their own books within the confines of glass cabinets. 

Anxious Homes
 from Damp Flat Books is on show.
