Library of Lost Books exhibition and curators talk

Visual Communication staff and students have been involved with the Library of Lost Books for over a year.

The Library of Lost Books is an on-going art project that questions our use of books in the digital age. Artists and their audiences are invited to examine their personal and cultural beliefs in books as objects and repositories of knowledge; explored through their re-working.

The Library sends old, discarded library books to UK artists to be re-made into works of art. The scope of work corroborates the exhibition as both aesthetic and educational in the possibilities it demonstrates, and draws heavily upon the related traditions of ‘altered books’ and ‘artists' books’.

The first Public exhibition of the The Library of Lost Books will take place
25 April - 23 May 2013 at the School of Art & Design's Bessant Gallery. The show will be open daily between 10am - 4pm

There will also be a Curators talk, Wednesday 22 May At 2pm Venue: MK045, School of Art & Design If you are interested in the philosophy behind this project, and would like to know more about the artworks and the artists that created them, why not join us for the Curators Talk?
