The Library in Art's Crosshairs

Henry Pisciotta, "The Library in Art's Crosshairs," Art Documentation: Journal of the Art Libraries Society of North America 35, no. 1 (Spring 2016): 2-26. https://doi.org/10.1086/685974 ABSTRACT: The library has been examined critically by many artists, particularly those working since the 1960s. This article identifies four ideas recurring in art works that critique this institution. These themes relate the library to its community, to issues of authorship and ownership, to restrictive forms of order, and to the tension between chaos and order that often accompanies creativity. Posted by agreement with the University of Chicago Press.
