Celebrating Books and Libraries

 

Books that had reached the end of their shelf life were generously donated by the Central Oxford Library. They were randomly selected with an empahsis on variety, and pairs of books with contrasting content were wrapped and selected unseen by the participating artists. Each artist was invited to respond to their books in any way they chose with an awareness of the possibilities offered by the exhibition space
