Artists Pauline Braun and Audrey Lute initiated an art project which they believe is unique to MB. More than just the art... is based on a set of Artist's Book Ideation Cards which was designed for book artists by American artists Barbara Tetenbaum and Julie Chen. There are two decks in the set: Category Cards containing approximately eight cards in each of the seven categories, text, image, structure, paper, layout, technique and colour; and 54 Adjective Cards. If you choose a card randomly from each of the seven categories and five cards from the adjectives you get an unexpected recipe for a project.
The exhibition of More than just the art... features artworks of 52 artists.
