Exhibition Dates: November 21 – December 22, 2015
Opening Reception: Saturday November 21, 7-10pm
Para//el Room is an exhibition that stems from a celebration of the DNA bookshop, the act of collecting books, and creating a space for research. Adjacent to the gallery, the bookshop is a dedicated area for the dissemination of artists’ publications and texts on contemporary art + theory. For this exhibition the bookshop has been extended out into DNA’s main floor gallery. The artists listed have been invited to recommend one book title that has been influential to their art practice. Copies of the books are displayed for visitors to read and contemplate the archive. From this group of artists, eleven individuals are exhibiting a work that relates to their book choice. This collection of pieces highlights the important research that runs alongside studio practices.
All of the books and works are available for purchase.
