Organized in conjunction with Nick Ferreira, Jori Ketten and Andrew Oesch
Carpenter St. Branch consisted of approximately 50 books sourced from thrift stores, used bookstores, and antique shops in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. In addition to these books, the branch also featured two exhibitions of visual art - Living With Data and Mining the Collection, as well as a series of programs and talks. A scanning station was available for visitor use. Participating artists included Jay Zehnebot, Emmy Bright, Landfill Magazine, Buck Hastings, Nick Carter, and Daniela Ben-Bassat.
Carpenter St. Branch was made possible by a generous grant from the
Rhode Island Council for the Humanities.
