As we launch our 2016 program with two show-stopping exhibitions, we're very excited to bring you yet another FREE resource: a reading list from our popup library.
Assembled by the City of Boroondara Library Services team, this reading list is chock full of delicious bibliographic information on our exhibiting artists, key artistic styles and a plethora of magazines (if that's more your thing).
All of the resources listed below are available at your local City of Boroondara library, so feel free to give them a call on (03) 9278 4666 to get more information. They also have a great website where you can reserve books online and a blog that's updated regularly on all things bookish!
Our popup library will be open throughout the course of the exhibition so make sure you leave a little extra time for your visit to indulge in some cheeky reading in the gallery.
