Exhibition | MAMbo Education department
2-22 April 2017 – Inauguration 2 April at 5:00 pm
What happens when great musicians, graphic designers or artists, basically authors known in a completely different context, decide to venture into the world of children’s books? This exhibition is dedicated to the discovery of amazing picture books by “unexpected” authors, such as musician John Cage (Mud book), artist Paul Cox (Piccolo teatro alfabetico) and graphic designer Milton Glaser (If Apples Had Teeth).
Other small “invasions of the field” from Ó.P.L.A Merano, childrens artist’s book Archive, are on display, with a selection of books by artists such as John Lennon, Dino Buzzati and Emilio Isgrò.
For the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, CorrainiMAMbo artbookshop will host the exhibition Joanna Neborsky. Proust Questionnaire, in which the American illustrator reinterprets with her bizarre illustrated collages the classic personality test made famous by Marcel Proust. Some of the plates from Proust Questionnaire will be on show, inviting visitors to follow in the steps of the author of In Search of Lost Time and dig deep, be creative and, above all, become more self-aware.
