Reading an exhibition together
28 October 2017 – 18 February 2018
Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art One
NOW: Michael Armitage, Yto Barrada, Kate Davis,
Susan Philipsz, Hiwa K, Sarah Rose
On the occasion of the NOW exhibition at Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art One, My Bookcase invites visitors to contribute to the creation of a collective reading list in response to the exhibition.
Reading an exhibition together invites visitors of the Gallery’s Resource Room to recommend a book to the artists and past, present and future visitors shaping a collection of books that expands the exhibition and its themes beyond the Galleries’ walls.
Storytelling, communication, memory, loss… do these themes or the works in NOW at Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art One connect to your experiences or books you have read?
Recommendations were recorded, creating a digital reading list for NOW available online at My Bookcase Platform and the conversation continued online using #readinganexhibition Twitter and Instagram.
‘Reading an exhibition together’ is a project by My Bookcase in collaboration with Màiri Lafferty and Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art .
