Thumbsucker: Book Art at the Learning Centre

Thumbsucker, a riveting exhibition of book objects, is on display at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.

The works were created by Visual Art Theory students at UBC in a 300-level course taught by Christine D’Onofrio. In D’Onofrio’s words, “An essential emptiness is what Thumbsucker seeks to find, but the promise of wanting something more makes it undeniably full.”

Come see for yourself – the show appears on the fourth floor mezzanine of the Learning Centre’s Ridington Room until November 14. Many of the items can be handled and explored in person.
