How might a collection of feminists texts help us imagine a kinder, more generous future?
The “Library for the Future” is a sculptural installation that borrows and subverts
the form and language of libraries to create
an interactive space for female thought-partnership, deep inquiry, generous resource-sharing, and lively, challenging conversation.
What begins as a literary portrait of artists
in an exhibition – featuring books that have informed their relationships to feminism – evolves in response to visitors’ requests.
By including blank books in its collection, the Library encourages visitors to consider how libraries reinforce power and what it means to publish, collect, and canonize.
*Ongoing, collaborative, project with textiles artist, Alicia Oas
