Photo-based Books at the AGO Library
Tomorrow night at the Art Gallery of Ontario, librarian Donald Rance and other archivists present another in the "Unshelved" series. The previous iteration, in February, presented books, multiples and ephemera by Lawrence Weiner. See previous post here, for more information.
Tomorrow evening's event is essentially the flip-side of Weiner's text-based practice: it will be focused on photo-based artists books, both historical and contemporary. As always, the books are not presented under glass, but on desktops where viewers are encouraged to interact with the works.
The event takes place at the E.P. Taylor Library & Archives, between 5 and 7pm on Wednesday May 30th.
