“8th International Artist’s Books Triennial Vilnius 2018” in Vercelli
Theme: “Memento Mori”
Time: 23 February – 10 March 2019
Location: “Museo Leone”, Vercelli, Italy
We have received the letter from the “Comune di Vercelli” with the official invitation to show the “8th International Artist’s Books Triennial Vilnius 2018” in a wonderful Museum – “Museo Leone” in 2019. Here we plane to exhibit about 50 artist’s books (we are very sorry, but the space doesn’t allow to exhibit more artist’s books) from the “8th Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius 2018”. Soon we will announce artists selected for the Exhibition in Vercelli.
It is the second time when the Artist’s Book Triennial will be exhibited in Vercelli. We showed the “7th International Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius 2015” in “Museo Leone” in 2015.
The Museum “Museo Leone” was built in the sixteenth century for the noble Alciati, landowners Vercelli. It has the typical plant, of Roman origin, with rooms arranged around a central courtyard, almost square, with arcades on the ground floor with round arches, supported by columns of gneiss, which are repeated with small on the first floor. The “Museo Leone” was opened in Vercelli in 1910.
Vercelli is an ancient and beautiful town in northern Italy. It was founded in around the year 600 BC. Here were living Bishop Eusebius of Vercelli, Saint. Augustinus (Aurelius Augustinus) and other world famous philosophies.
Grazie mille per il nostro amico Roberto Gianinetti per aiuto nell’organizzare questa mostra a Vercelli.
