Challenge VII: dysFUNctional

EXHIBITION CATALOGUE  |  THE CENTER FOR ART IN WOOD  | Philadelphia, PA

 

"...the book provides immediate gratification, possibly comparable to seeing the show in person, through its interactive features." —American Craft Magazine

The Center’s publication documents Challenge VII: dysFUNctional, a ground-breaking exhibition. It captures the whimsy and imagination of the artists in a delightful design by award-winning designer, Dan Saal.

Challenge VII: dysFUNctional creates visual dialogue between objects and videos that never were intended to be together. The work is persuasive in content, form, surface, and movement evoking humor, curiosity and suspicion. By “diss-ing” function, the artists turn the every day into delightful disuse.

This publication was awarded the second prize in the American Association of Museums: 2009 Museum Publications Design Competition.
