projet MOBILIVRE BOOKMOBILE project

projet MOBILIVRE BOOKMOBILE project, 2001-2006

a touring exhibit of artist books, zines, and independent publications, organized within an old trailer transformed into a gallery/reading room

MOBILIVRE was developed and sustained by a fluctuating group of Canadian and American artists for five years. Each year we took a newly curated collection of artist books across our two countries, visiting community centers, libraries, universities, and artist-run centers, often in far, remote places. Artist books and zines typically stay in their respective communities. In an effort to challenge this and demystify our practices as well as the process of zine and bookmaking, our visits included free, public access to a rotating collection of over 400 works as well as technical bookbinding workshops and artist talks.
