Book, lamp, chair: An exhibited library

Reading practices of MOMENTA | Biennale de l’image 2017

7 September - 14 October 2017

Opening reception: 6 September at 6:30 PM

A library within a library, Artexte’s exhibition space is transformed into a reading room. Book, lamp, chair: An exhibited library presents publications that document the practices of artists participating in MOMENTA | Biennale de l’image 2017. In a familiar setting that encourages exploration, documentation from Artexte’s collection is shown in conjunction with a print project by conceptual artist Micah Lexier (Canada) and a video program including works by David Hartt (Canada), Nelson Henricks (Canada), Valérie Mréjen (France), and Erin Shirreff (United States). The exhibition is an open invitation to consider the documentation of artistic practices, the multiple ways available for reading and interpreting images, and the role of the library as a space to rest, see, and learn.
