The International Library

a book project by Helmut Löhr in which a network of artists communicate through the exchange of book objects

Brian Hannon said of the exhibition: “Every work in this exhibition suggests a personal history and an unseen, private library of ideas. In addition to being artists, some of of the contributors to the library have been or are currently: anthropologist, theatrical set designers, bookbinders, botanists, woodworkers, grave diggers, political prisoners, blacksmiths, linguists, sculptors, architects, performers, arts administrators, sociologists, publishers, fashion designers, photographers, ceramicists, silversmiths, layers, phycologists, and speech therapists. From a common object comes a multiplicity of ideas about the times in which we live, the daily challenges we confront, and the future we hope for.”

Support for the Center for Book Arts’ visual arts programming is provided, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
