Call for Entries – A Book About Death Seattle

Published October 18, 2011

Submit a page to the unbound book about death

“A Book About Death” is an artists’ collaborative project conceived by collage artist Matthew Rose for the Emily Harvey Foundation in New York City where the original exhibition took place from September 10 – 22, 2009.

Over 500 artists contributed 500 postcards each created from artworks made especially to create an unbound book about memory and death. The exhibition has become a global phenomenon, as well as becoming part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the LA County Museum of Art Research Library.
