Working Library Open House

  • c3: initiative 8836 North Lombard Street Portland, OR, 97203 United States

The Working Library is a collaborative art project. It is a space to engage the concept of a library through two threads; a site of production and a program for participation—rooted in curiosity and unexpected interconnections.

One branch of the Working Library is a visiting artist program envisioned as an open and flexible structure that allows for multiple representations and interpretations of what a library is, and what it can be.

Another branch is the Working Library Residency in collaboration with c3:initiative. The residency will produce artist projects dealing in themes of publication, archive, and collection through the lens of artists of color.
