The current situation has forced us to reflect on how to realize the Book Object festival at our best, which has seen us engaged for a year now.
Infact, in consideration of the restrictions imposed to stem the Coronavirus emergency, it can currently only be realized in a virtual way.
The closure of the museums is scheduled until December 3, 2020 but no one is able to guarantee the release of the restrictions, with the prospect of setting up an exhibition which no one will ever be able to visit.
The books participating in this edition, accompanied by over 70 videos, deserve to be enjoyed to the fullest.
We believe that, in order not to lose the innovative and unique contents of this edition, it is more effective and rewarding to wait until September 14, 2021 the opening date of the exhibition at the ADI Design Museum.
The exhibition at the Braidense National Library is postponed to December 1, 2021 the only date available for the extension.
In consideration of this new scenario we are defining the contents of the exhibition in ADI e the artists selected for this exhibition will be notified by January.
The catalog will be distributed on the occasion of the first inauguration.
Sure of your understanding, we continue to believe in the future.
SBLU_spazioalbello is pleased to announce that the National Braidense Library, in Milan, has been confirmed as the official location of the 2020 edition of Book Object scheduled from December 1th to December 31th.
The second location is in the nascent ADI Design Museum – Compasso d’Oro.
We announce the parallel competition for the creation of a bookmark, dedicated to “time” in collaboration with Fila, Fabbrica Italiana Lapis and Affini.
Oggetto Libro / Book Object is an international festival, now at its third edition, that compares Artist’s Book and Book Design with the aim of stimulating a debate on creativity.
The festival created in 2016 by Susanna Vallebona on the occasion of the XXI Triennale di Milano compares the art world and the world of design through the common denominator of creativity.
The event, which received the Honorable Mention at the XXV Compasso d’Oro ADI, is promoted by SBLU_spazioalbello, Pinacoteca di Brera, National Braidense Library, Mediateca Santa Teresa and AIAP (Italian Association of visual communication design), under the patronage of ADI (industrial design association italy).
SBLU_spazioalbello is a non-profit association founded with the aim of spreading visual culture, provoking doubts and moving questions in the search for beauty. It want to be a center of constructive provocation and a meeting point for creative people and enthusiasts, in a context now accustomed to any visual stimulus.
To achieve this goal, it proposes initiatives and exhibitions that involve the general public.
