Shelf Documents - Art Library as Practice

Shelf Documents - Art Library as Practice
Library Shelf Location 13c.HINR
Publication Date 01 Jan 2021

How can art libraries be generative resources and sites of action for all who identify as queer, as women, as Black, as Indigenous, as people of colour? What does it mean to consider the art library as a collective practice that spans multiple scales?

In shelf documents artists, writers, curators, teachers, and librarians reflect on their engagements with books, libraries and art-library-as-practice.

Between a reader, an artist’s book, a project documentation and a catalogue, shelf documents might recall a pamphlet, a roadmap, or a recipe book that doesn’t tell you what to do. It is a book that gets mis-shelved. In thinking about diversity in collections, the publication proposes art libraries as sites of intersubjective communion.
