Join LAAC on Sunday, February 14th for a visit to the LA Art Book Fair held at The Geffen Contemporary, MOCA. We will meet to attend a talk entitled, “The Dynamic Library: Organizing Knowledge at the Sitterwerk - Precedents and Possibilities”, located in Gallery D from 12:00 - 1:00.
After the talk, let’s walk over to Far Bar for food & drinks!
The Dynamic Library: Organizing Knowledge at the Sitterwerk - Precedents and Possibilities.
12:00 - 1:00 Gallery D
At the Sitterwerk in St. Gallen, Switzerland, an unusual system that relies on RFID technology was developed to turn an idiosyncratic collection of art books into a publicly accessible library. What are some of the collections that presenters have created and/or manage, how do they organize them, and how do they make them accessible? This event will explore the challenges and pleasures they’ve encountered, as well as the role played by digital technology. Presented by Soberscove Press.
And, if you’re still around at 3:00, there is an interesting talk organized and moderated by UCLA MLIS graduate, Nicoletta Beyer, as part of the Contemporary Artists‘ Books Conference coordinated by local arts library and archives professionals.
Contemporary Art and the Occult
3:00 - 5:00 Theatre (Gallery V)
A panel of practicing contemporary artists discuss their work relating to alchemy, astrology, chaos magic, Gnosticism, shamanism, and occultism at large; manifested and documented in the printed form.
