Shelf Life: Leytonstone Arts Trail

Charley Peters, Continuum (2013), Graphite on Computer Listing Paper, inspired by the book
The Revolution will be Digitised: Despatches from the Information War by Heather Brooke
Members of xvi Artist Collective have taken over the octagonal cabinet at the centre of Leytonstone Library as part of Leytonstone Arts Trail, each generating a piece of artwork in response to a book from the collection. Choosing works that have a notable significance to each artist, there will be a small publication available to the public, with information about the books that inspired the artists.

Artists: Hannah Futers, Caro Halford, Kirsty Harris, Julia Miranda, Moorland Productions, Laurie Nouchka, Jane Oldfield, Charley Peters, Paul Stanley, Susanna Thornton, Ventiko, Jemma Watts and Sarah West.

The Preview is Thursday 4 July, 6.30-8.30pm.
The show runs 6-14 July, Mon-Fri 9am-7pm, Saturday 9am-6pm and Sunday 12-4pm.
