Exhibit

This multi-venue exhibit of installations, performances, interventions, and events by University of Michigan faculty, Bookmarks: Speculating the Futures of the Book and Library, seeks to instigate and showcase creative responses to challenges to the book and the library in the forms we have inherited as well as to project ways of reimagining futures for/of books and libraries.

The continued proliferation of digital formats and systems for the embodiment, distribution, and delivery of knowledge increasingly displace the book as form. As a result, the spacial limitations of libraries are challenged. The value of the book and the function of the library demand cultural attention. In this moment, we ask ourselves: what is the future of the library? What is the future of the book?

Join us for an opening reception on March 27, 5:30 p.m., in the lobby of the Shapiro Undergraduate Library.

Exhibit venues:
Clark Library, second floor Hatcher Library
Lobby, Shapiro Library
Second Floor, Art, Architecture & Engineering Library
