Opening of Islington Mill reference Library

This week sees the launch of the new Islington Mill Arts reference Library, initiated by the Art Academy working with artist Gary Leddington. The library is an arts resource comprised of artists monographs, exhibition catalogues and survey publications as well as cultural theory ranging from philosophy to art. One of the long-term goals of the library is to develop a specialised section of publications from locally based artists. The library is a free and publicly available resource compiled on a donations basis, with over 300 publications attained from the initial call. The library will be launched on Monday 16th and will be officially open to use by appointment from then onwards. Coinciding with the exhibition The Dilemma of Archive, the launch will see the library open for browsing and is the perfect opportunity to bring along any donations.
