EVENT DESCRIPTION

The second iteration of a ten-year-long project, Heman Chong’s The Library of Unread Books developed from the artist’s deep-seated longing for books. The reference library is made up of donated books that were unread by their previous owners. By receiving and revealing that which people choose not to read, the library is the result of a collective gesture that traces the perimeters of unwanted knowledge. Managed in collaboration with chief librarian Renée Staal, the library is open to the public from Tuesdays to Saturdays. The exhibition is part of MCAD Commons, an upcoming exhibition program of the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, Manila.
