Hyde Park Branch
The University of Chicago
October 21 - November 13, 2010
Organized in conjunction with Jennifer Cohen, Hannah Klemm and Mackenzie Schneider
Hyde Park Branch was organized as a part of the University of Chicago's fifth annual joint English and Art History graduate student conference, Communicating Forms: Aesthetics Relationality Collaboration. The Branch Library was assembled from books found in thrift stores and used bookstores across Chicago as well as 2 titles borrowed from Marc Fischer's personal collection. It also included an exhibition of artworks generated from the library's holdings. In keeping with the theme of the conference, many of these works have been produced in a collaborative manner, or by collectives. Participating artists included Erik Cameron, Flux Factory, David Hartwell, David Horvitz, Josef Jacques, Allan LeSage, Sarah Podles, Ben Spicer, Jacob Spicer, and Joshua Marie Wilkinson. A photocopier was provided for visitor use.
