March 2 – April 25, 2012
Opening: Friday, March 2 | 7:00-10:00pm
During March and April, Drift Station will become a temporary bookstore and reading library where the public can browse and purchase artworks. Bookstore is the result of an international open call for artist books, zines, comics, and other unusual publications.
Totaling over 1,000 printed works, Bookstore includes works ranging from handcrafted works to photocopied pamphlets to print-on-demand books from all across the world. This exhibition represents the uniqueness and idiosyncrasy that can exist in print, perhaps the most egalitarian and inclusive art forms.
All work will be for sale for under $30 or are free. Sales from Bookstore will go directly to the artist with a portion of the proceeds going towards future programming at Drift Station.
