PUBLIC SUMMER: Library of Immediacy

Join us in celebrating the opening of the outdoor installation, PUBLIC SUMMER: Library of Immediacy, on Saturday, July 21st from 2-5pm. It was designed and constructed by the architectural duo, saA, who are Amy Chang and Seo Young Shin. The event will include a performance by artist Devin Kenny, readings, and live musical guests.

Located on the Parade Grounds on Governors Island, The Library of Immediacy will host an ongoing, community-curated installation by The People’s Library and artist collective, DADDY, on weekends from July 21st-September 23rd. Visitors are welcome to bring and take books to add to the growing collection of this satellite of the People’s Library. In addition, concurrent with The Library of Immediacy, DADDY presents #LOANER, a democratically curated, anecdotal, and didactic display of objects. Viewers are asked to present and create wall text for personal items; objects may be loaned if replaced with a similar object for display. The collection will be subsequently archived through social media and an oversized log book. Through this mediated accumulation, an index emerges that supersedes the importance of the individual.
