Contemporary Artists Books Conference this Saturday

Posted in Uncategorized by Library Projects on November 2, 2010

Join us for the panel that inspired the blog!

11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Experimental Libraries and Reading Rooms
What constitutes an experimental library? What is the impetus to create such a library and what impact do such spaces have on our exchange of ideas, the conduct research, or creation of art? Does this impulse stem from a need to create an intellectual community outside of academia, address an underrepresented subject, articulate an intellectual curiosity, or simply nostalgia for printed books and libraries, these spaces share the common trait of presenting unique collections of research material to the public. Martha Wilson of Franklin Furnace will give an introductory presentation.

Participants include:
Wendy Yao, Ooga Booga;
Andrew Beccone, the Reanimation Library;
Robin Cameron and Jason Polan, the Assembled Picture Library;
Tiffany Malakooti and Babak Radboy, Bidoun Library.
Moderated by Renaud Proch, Independent Curators International (ICI).
