This free event celebrates Bristol Art Library's 20th anniversary. Head librarian artist Annabel Other is delighted to be bringing the library to The Hypatia Trust. A performance event - pop in and interact with this fully functioning public library housed in a wooden cabinet the size of a small suitcase.
The library’s volumes cover a wide range of subjects, from palaeontology to astronomy, with 250 books made by artists and practitioners from all areas of the arts and sciences. The library will be at Tate St Ives the day before it comes to Hypatia in Penzance and new publications will be collected in Cornwall along the way - including an edition by artist Abigail Reynolds.
Membership of Bristol Art Library is free, and once you have joined and received your manilla reader’s ticket you may visit the library and peruse its volumes anywhere in the world. The library now has 1200 members, a gift shop and a friends’ organisation FOTBAL (Friends of The Bristol Art Library).
Pop in and join in the fun on Saturday 3rd November anytime between 2-4pm. We recommend you sign up for a free ticket through eventbrite - though just come along if not!
