On 29 of October, later in the evening, after 24 hours of travel, I reached the Guest House of the State University of New York at Fredonia. Today, on 30 of October we with Prof. Timothy Frerichs installed the part of the “8th International Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius 2018”. Not all of the artist’s books we had the possibility to install. But what we did – we did beautiful and high quality exhibition of artist’s books.
The Reed Library at Fredonia is the last destination of the “8th International Artist’s Book Triennial Vilnius 2018”. After this exhibition we will start to return your artist’s books back to you, with the catalogue of the Triennial.
Reed Library of the State University of New York at Fredonia was designed in 1968 by internationally renowned architect – Ieoh Ming Pei. Even now, after so much time the building of the University looks very modern and beautiful.
