Daddy's Books

Saturday, February 9, 2019 - 4:00pmDrury Gallery

Exhibit

Daddy’s Books is a traveling library of over 150 artists’ books, zines, comics, poetry chapbooks, and works of fictions donated from artists, writers, and publishers around the world. Curators Caitlin Macbride and Lauren Faigle will transform Drury Gallery into an inviting, interactive reading room for visitors. Guests are welcome to gather a pile of favorites to read, pull up a chair and stay a while. The books on display at Daddy’s Books include printed words on the page, but many push the definition of “book” to it’s limit, or deny it altogether, including works on stone, audiotape, and fur. Collected with an inclusive spirit, the curators welcome submissions to the exhibition from local community members. In their words, Daddy’s Books strives to find work that is "open, unfettered...and able to keep you company in even your most lonely, fearful, or confusing times.” While the exhibit will be up until March 1, on Saturday, February 9 at 4pm, Lauren and Caitlin will offer an artists’ walk through of the reading room followed by a bookmaking workshop. Please RSVP to the workshop by February 3. Drop-ins are welcome, but supplies may be limited. To RSVP or for information on submitting books to Daddy’s Books, email daddysbooksnyc@gmail.com.
