The Emily Carr University Library: Arnaud Desjardin - Artist in Residence

During his residency, Arnaud worked in the library and presented an artist talk, led a workshop at READ, exhibited at Unit/Pitt Projects and launched his "Book on Books on Artists’ Books" at Satellite Gallery. Desjardin is a French artist, curator and publisher currently based in London.
