Our project-in-residence Reanimation Library presents the second exhibition of our yearlong investigation of Water. The exhibition, Reanimation Library/Gowanus Branch, presents new work by Jen Bervin, David East, and Marget Long. The exhibition will also include a selection of water-related books from the library’s collection. The exhibition works in sculpture, photography, video, installation and textile all grew out of an initial encounter with printed material, often from the library’s own collection. The exhibition runs from January 4 through March 16, 2014.
