|PUBLIC COLLECTORS STUDY CENTER
Starting on December 9th, 2009, the Public Collectors Study Center will open in Chicago.
Now don't envision some kind of monolithic, money-sucking structure that uses expensive corporate parties to fund its daily operations! The Study Center is small. How small? Is it bigger than a bread box? Yes, but not too many bread boxes. Located in the corner of a basement, with a floor-plan measuring just over fifty square feet, the Public Collectors Study Center seeks to create intimate and focused experiences.
The first exhibition begins on December 9th:
DON CELENDER: 11 Books
When Don Celender died in 2005, he left behind an unusually focused and accessible body of work that is ripe for rediscovery. Many younger audiences and those who did not see his solo exhibitions (almost all presented in New York), or have yet to encounter his books (mostly self-published and hard to find) are unfamiliar with this underrated Conceptual artist.
Some of the books included in the exhibit:
OPINIONS OF WORKING PEOPLE CONCERNING THE ARTS (1975)
Visitors to the exhibit will be able to pick up a free limited edition folio with materials on Celender published by Public Collectors.
Exhibition hours are from 5 - 8 PM on Wednesdays, starting on December 9, 2009 until February 10, 2010.
Address: [listed publicly during exhibition dates]
Note that due to its very small size, the Study Center does not have opening receptions.
