Artist: Charlie Macquarie
The Library of Approximate Location is an ongoing itinerant project installing site-specific, small scale libraries at selected locations around the American West. Taking as its starting point this landscape as a vast, techno-industrial megastructure, this library proposes alternative networks, supply chains, resource management practices. What might happen if we diversify our value systems to reflect family histories, emotional landscapes, or an aesthetic of the commons? Operating on an alternative logic, and claiming physical space for sharing and non-monetized transaction, the library becomes the ideal site to speculate critically about restructuring the terms of exchange around resource extraction and a networked world.
Reception: Wed. Mar. 8 @ 2
Artist Talk: Wed. Mar. 8 @ 2-3pm, The Poetry Center, Prim Library 1st floor
