a short history of the art book bag (and the things that go in them)
AAA Public Programmes Curator Ingrid Chu explores the international phenomenon of the 'art book bag' in a short history of the art book bag (and the things that go in them). Using the last 15 years as a guide, the exhibition features the things that go in them—including AAA collection materials, as well as related publications, magazines, clothing, accessories, and ephemera—alongside a vast array of these popular totes in the AAA Library. Chu also invites artists, curators, art book fair organisers, and print and online publishers to provide insight into the changing modes of knowledge production and circulation, and their influence on recent art of Asia.
