LIBRO The Liberation of the Book | Concourse Gallery
The act of reading “opens awareness of the self as always emergent rather than fixed,” reflects Randy Lee Cutler, in the C Magazine article A Practice in Reading.
From losing oneself in a page-turner, to the nonlinear reading of ubiquitous media of everyday text and imagery, we read not only the language presented, but we become closer to understanding how diverse the processing of this information is from individual to individual. With LIBRO The Liberation of the Book, we ask, what happens when a printed publication is experienced in the bare hand of a viewer, as opposed to being secured behind glass?

Brown, Vanessa Brown, Susanna Browne, Meaghen Buckley, Cathy Busby, Matthew Chu, Joni Cooper, Elissa Crowe, Adria Leduc, Randy Lee Cutler, Sarah Davidson & James Linton Murphy, Jeff Downer, Jesse Garbe & Geneviève Raiche-Savoie, Gray Publications, Erin Guimond, Caroline Halley, Beth Howe, Garry Neill Kennedy, Lili ‘Paradise’ Khanmalek, Jacob Maddison, Jessie McNeil, Olivia Meek, Ann Milligan, Cole Pauls, Rafael Puyana, Flip Sandy, and Alena Webber.
