Location Services are ON! In this time of hyper-locatability via digital maps, what kinds of places and things might still remain lost?

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 runs from January 4 through March 16, 2014. [continue reading…]
Lock, stock and barrel, the Reanimation Library has moved temporarily to MOMA as part of Print Studio, an interactive space that explores the evolution of artistic practices relating to the medium of print. Be sure to visit Andrew and the Library at MOMA from January 23-March 9. Meanwhile, back at Proteus, in partnership with our Project-In-Residence, The Museum of Matches, we will be launching a new temporary project in the Reanimation space. The Berlin Tunnel Project, opening January 28, will be an installation inspired by a declassified CIA document. Stay tuned for more on this.
