About this EventAdd to calendar
Quarantine Public Library (QPL) is a repository of one-page books made by artists, free for anyone to download, print, and assemble—to keep or give away. Tracy Honn and Katie Garth launched the project in July 2020 in response to the loss of public space and institutional art access during the ongoing global health crisis. The website has connected new audiences across the world to books by more than 200 artists, writers, poets, and scholars. By provoking joyful interactions with printed artwork, QPL has worked to disrupt pervasive feelings of isolation during this pandemic.
Honn and Garth will present their collaborative project and talk about its origins, their approach, collection curation, QPL’s reception, and some of its outcomes.
