Room for Reading is an opportunity to make use of our unique library on the first Thursday of every month. Designed by artist Andrew Miller and filled with an expansive collection of art books, magazines and periodicals, the library is available for reference and research from lunchtime until late, with tea and coffee provided.

Not sure what to read? Books are suggested every month in conjunction with our exhibitions and projects. June's 'Room for Reading' features books about materiality selected by our exhibiting artist Katinka Bock, that are of relevance to the Roundtable Conversation on 21 June with artists Josée Aubin Ouellette and Kate V. Robertson, and academic Frances Robertson.
