DEEP/SHALLOW OPENS APRIL 29TH
Reference material is as often heavily researched as it is happened upon. Artworks in DEEP/SHALLOW were made in response to The Library’s collection of books and other printed materials donated from artists’ own reference libraries. The appropriation of these resources forces a contextual continuity (which normally occurs organically and over time) across disciplines, content and processes. DEEP/SHALLOW will be on view at The Gowanus Studio Space from April 29th through May 29th 2011.

INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION/PERFORMANCE BY ROB ANDREWS
Votive Door (K) is a way station. A system that requires containers. We are a channel. Breath is a channel. No library without librarians!
