Reference Archive and Library - Inaugurated within the context of Young Curators, New Ideas II, August 2009.
Cleopatra’s invited a long list of friends, colleagues, and peers to participate in the formation of our Reference Archive and Library. Each cultural producer was asked to make a contribution of a book of their choice – something that reflects their personal curatorial, philosophical, theoretical, and aesthetic practices. At the conclusion of the exhibition at PPOW, the library will be moved and permanently installed at Cleopatra's storefront in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. This ever-expanding bookshelf, which will function as an open resource to the public that will be built upon over time with thoughtful contributions by colleagues, mentors, and friends of all disciplines within the arts.
