Marie Artaker & Margherita Huntley:
The Paralibrary

Dear librarian,
This is a proposal for an exhibition to be held at the site of your library using the books in your collection.

The process and display would contain the following elements:

(A)   A display of books, selected from your library, based on a set of criteria as listed in (B)

(B)   A text which includes this covering letter, an explanation of the criteria used to curate the
 books in the display (A) and a bibliography

(C)   Documentation from the previous iteration/s of the project that took place in other libraries,
 creating connections between collections in different cities and countries

(D)   Potential for parts (A) and (B) to be repeated at a further library, with the documentation from
 your library becoming part (C)

We are looking forward to hearing what you think.
Marie Artaker and Margherita Huntley
