At Home, Together: The Quarantine Public Library
Monday, July 25, 2022, 5-6:15 PM
Online presentation via Zoom
Quarantine Public Library 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 site 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.

Tracy and Katie will discuss their collaborative project, and talk about its origins; their approach; collection curation; QPL’s reception, and some of its outcomes.
A live online presentation by Katie Garth, print-based artist, and Tracy Honn, printing history educator, curator, and letterpress printer
