A BOOK ABOUT DEATH was an fantastic exhibition and performance that started in New York City at the Emily Harvey Foundation in September of 2009. Since then it has been traveling around the world and will be exhibited in Fort Worth, Texas this October.

The Fluxmuseum has a complete set of the ‘pages’ of this book. Cecil Touchon and Company will be mounting the A BOOK ABOUT DEATH exhibition at the Fort Worth Community Art Center during the month of October (Oct. 8-30) We will be arranging an evening of performance as well toward the end of the exhibition. Hopefully on Halloween Eve (October 30, 2010)

In addition to the installation of A Book About Death we would like to invite artists to contribute works around the traditions of Day of the Dead and Halloween. We will set up an ofrenda on the floor below the installed book.
 
Research the Day of the Dead, ofrenda, Halloween, death masks, etc. and create works of art that celebrate or refer to this special time of the year. Works can be mementos, antique photos, objects, masks, collages, assemblages, etc.

Please send original works only. All works will be displayed, no jury, no fee, no returns. Contributed works will become a part of the Ontological Museum permanent collection. Please include a deed of gift form. To get the deed of gift form go to: http://ontologicalmuseum.org/exhibitions.html scroll to the bottom of the page to see link.

Take a photo of your contribution and send to info@ontologicalmuseum.org for the blog we will set up for this exhibit.  Images should be around 800 pixels on long side.
