Popup Library for Likeness

For our current exhibition Likeness, we have constructed an adorable popup library in gallery 3. We have joined forces with the City of Boroondara library service to bring you a diverse selection of books that explore portraiture as both a concept and an art making practice. 

There are some comfy couches and plenty of reading material so feel free to stay a while in gallery 3 on your next visit to THG. It's quiet and there's plenty to read!

Our full reading recommendations are listed below as well as the details for all of the City of Boroondara Libraries so you can drop by in person to borrow some books.

The popup library will be on display until the close of Likeness on December 20, 2015.

Happy reading!
