DESCRIPTION

Referencing the city's first public library in what is now the Chicago Cultural Center, Antonia Contro: Ex Libris presents mixed media works that representationally, metaphorically, digitally, and sonically reference the book. These works investigate the living nature of books and libraries, the interplay of these public and private experiences, and the ghosts of books that still inhabit the space.
