September 21st, Boston: Reception for “Threefold” Selections from the Indie Photobook Library

Photographic Resources Center at Boston University
“Threefold” Selections from the Indie Photobook Library
Curated by Larissa Leclair, Shane Lavalette and George Slade

Reception: Wednesday, September 21, 2011, 6:30 to 8:00 pm
Exhibition will be on view until November 12, 2011.

In the last decade various technologies have enabled artists to publish not only small editions of a book, but individual volumes when needed. Now, instead of a few books being made in large quantities, many books are being made in small quantities. The Indie Photobook Library (iPL), founded by Larissa Leclair in 2010, is committed to cataloging and preserving examples of the multitude of books that may never find their way into conventional library catalogues because of their modesty, or because they were often created by individual artists whose practice doesn’t include conventional distribution.

“Threefold” reflects the idiosyncratic interests of three curators — Shane Lavalette, Larissa Leclair, and George Slade — each adopting a unique focal point in an attempt to represent a remarkable moment in contemporary independent publishing.”  (From the PRC’s website.)
