There are two exhibits in the Decker Library in conjunction with the retrospective gallery exhibition at MICA of the textile-based work of Warren Seelig, "Textile: per se".
The upstairs and downstairs Library display cases are filled with textile, weaving and paper sample books, manuals and catalogues from as early as the early 1800's, from the personal collection of Warren Seelig. Included are some pieces that exemplify the spirit of Seelig's objects from the Decker Library's own special collections. The exhibit was designed and installed by Christina Barrera '11.
On the upper level, there is a "living bibliography" compiled by Samara Rosen '11 -- a shelf of books and readings that represent the intellectual investigations of Seelig, an active collector of knowledge from the environment that surrounds him. Along with books (including many from the Library's circulating collection) are catalogs from exhibitions Seelig has curated, articles he has written for journal publications, and other materials that have inspired his art practice.
The exhibits will be available for viewing from December 4, 2009 through March 14, 2010.
