The Blue Library Vol 2: Conversations
December 10, 2016 – January 29, 2017
Opening: Saturday, Dec 10, 6-10pm
The first volume of The Blue Library is currently in the permanent collection at Antenna. It included 30 photobooks by photographers all over the country made specially for the exhibition. The second volume is a group of photographs with photographers “in conversation” with another photographer of their choosing.
18 photographers were selected and asked to choose a partner to have a “conversation” with. The photographers collaborated, either making new images or drawing from their archive, to respond to each other’s work.
The books containing 20 images each are on display for December 2016-January 2017 at Antenna’s Reading Room and will remain in Antenna’s permanent collection.
The photographers are: Courtney Asztalos & Nydia Blas, Jessica Dean Camp & Cole Don Kelley, Angela Deane & Alisson Bittiker, Lee Deigaard & Elizabeth Stone, Hobbes Ginsberg & Andi Icaza, Michelle Groskopf & Alexander Coggin, Janna Ireland & Morgan Rachel Levy, Natalie Krick & Lissa Rivera, Ian Lewandowski & Caiti Borruso, Juan Madrid & Maggie Stockman, Ross Mantle & Chris Maggio, Noelle McCleaf & Michael McCraw, Zora Murff & Rana Young, Amy Lynn Powell & Maddie McGarvey, Tamara Reynolds & Matthew Genitempo, David Soffa & Liz Calvi, Sasha Tivetsky & Melissa Spitz, and Tara Wray & Carrie Elizabeth Thompson.
The exhibition was curated by Tammy Mercure.
