This multilayered, all-media exhibition demonstrated various ways that some of today’s most interesting artists have utilized libraries’ architectural appearance, collections, and research roles to explore their own personal values and thoughts concerning issues related to place, space, gender expectations and 21st-century life. The art ranged from enormous realistic photographic works to conceptual documentation pieces that revealed surprising poetry within the drawers of old- fashioned card catalogues. Artists included: Candida Höfer, Nina Katchadourian, Robert Longo, Abelardo Morrell, Buzz Spector and Brian Tolle.
