Shelf Documents - Art Library As Practice
Artists, writers, curators, teachers, and librarians reflect on how they can use art libraries as a source of inspiration, a generative resource, or a field of action for anyone who identifies as a woman, queer, non-binary, as Indigenous, as Black, or as a person of color. In thinking about diversity in collections, the publication proposes art libraries as sites of inter-subjective communion. The volume explores how art libraries be used to amplify voices, address gaps of knowledge, and address the needs of the overlooked and self-initiated.
