The Evanston Art Center (EAC) is excited to welcome the public to our upcoming exhibition 8TH INTERNATIONAL ARTIST’S BOOK TRIENNIAL: MEMENTO MORI curated by Kestutis Vasiliunas, and showcasing the artwork of 56 artists from 20 countries. The 8th International Artist’s Book Triennial is a unique non-commercial cultural project, organized to promote artist’s books, creators of artist’s books from all over the world, and to connect galleries, publishers, editors and printers of fine art & limited editions, the greater general public, collectors and individual artists. It is an educational art project involving world-renowned artists to familiarize art teachers, students and general public with the interdisciplinary arts with the stunning variety of artistic disciplines in an artist’s book – and especially to stimulate creativity and love for books.
Kestutis Vasiliunas (1964) is a Lithuanian printmaker and graphic designer, and creator of artist’s books. He holds a teaching position in the Graphics Department at Vilnius Academy of Arts in Lithuania.
