Everything is About to Happen: An ongoing archive of artists’ books selected by Gregorio Magnani
14 Mar - 26 Apr 2014
All the books selected are either self-published or participate in a minor economy of small publishers. Their modes of production and circulation, as well as the conditions under which they are experienced and stored, strengthen their content.
The exhibition attempts to address this through different modes of presentation: a vast communal display table, a more concentrated reading station, and an exact catalogue.
A certain surplus of vitality, a metaphoric, affective and social overflow of the codex structure is underlined.
