Pulp & Bind brings together 18 artists working across the diffuse region of Southern Appalachia who are deeply engaged with the mediums of paper and book as a form and a concept. The structural potential of paper, its emotive qualities and familiar insinuations, and the alternately highly-refined and visibly handmade possibilities of the material are just some of the recurrent themes across this exhibition. Bringing together this diverse group of objects, bound by a seemingly humble, familiar medium, reflects our region’s heterogeneity and challenges assumptions about Craft and Appalachian creative production at large.
