Talking Points Satellite Library


Talking Points Satellite Library


October 17 - November 11, 2016


Emily Fenn (curator)


This Satellite Library corresponds with the Student Union Galleries' "Talking Points" exhibition. Additional publications are on view in the LeRoy Neiman Center Gallery alongside the exhibition.

Using the urgency of the current US presidential election as impetus and entry, the "Talking Points" Satellite Library attempts to provide a constellation of our political reality with attention on the complexities of what is at stake for various populations. This selection of works from the Joan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection was curated in response to work from the exhibiting artists by Emily Fenn (BAVCS 2017).

*Inspired by the De Nue Satellite Library curated by Janelle Miller (BFA 2017), Flaxman Library Special Collections will host a series of Satellite Libraries curated by members of the SAIC community in conjunction with exhibitions and events around campus. These curated selections will be available on our flat file in the Special Collections Reading Room (Sharp 508) during open hours. Unlike our exhibitions, Satellite Libraries will be available for handling and close inspection during the course of their run.
