Libraries In and As Art


Nick ThurstonUnfortunately, due to personal reasons, this event can no longer take place on 4th September.

In this illustrated talk Nick was going to show a range of projects from around the world that show how contemporary art can help us to expand our understanding of what libraries do and can be. Hopefully we can reschedule this event for another occasion.  Nick Thurston is an Associate Professor of Contemporary Art and Literature, University of Leeds. He is the co-curator of the current exhibition at Henry Moore Institute entitled The Weight of Words which explores the relationship between sculpture and poetry.
