What happens when you put an art gallery into a book? You'll be able to find out the answer on Saturday when Location, Volumes Five and Six are released at Midway Contemporary Art.
When Nedrelow and Nusz were talking to artists to create pieces for the effort, they asked them to make it specifically for pages in a book. While the artists may still show their work in other places, the idea is that the primary way to see the art would be in book form.

The Location series are made in a set, and are for sale on their website and at the Walker Art Center's gift shops. They're also available at the MCAD library. "They've gone into some institutional collections because they are $100 for each volume," Nedrelow says. "They're kind of expensive. They're not like regularly published books." It's all part of the experiment.
