This brief session, titled ‘On Our Table: Artist Books,’ aims to spotlight materials from the Stuart Hall Library and Iniva’s archive, exploring the intersection of book, archive object, and artwork – commonly referred to as ‘artists books.’ This term may be challenging to define precisely, but in simple terms, it refers to works of art may that utilise the book form.  

Archivist and Engagement Producer Kaitlene Koranteng, along with Assistant Librarian Charlotte Mui, will guide you through the diverse contexts and social depths encapsulated within our collections. Our discussion will showcase notable works in our collection, such as Shiraz Bajoo’s visual interpretation of Treasure Island and anothermountainman’s celebration of the iconic red-white-and-blue bags ubiquitous in Hong Kong. 

In the hands of an artist, books can assume various shapes and forms. Join us on our table as we challenge conventional notions of what defines a book, offering you a glimpse into the artistic exploration of this unique medium. 


It is free to attend this event and everyone is welcome. If you have accessibility requirements or questions please email library@iniva.org
