Thinking of a Place

Thinking of a Place investigates the nature of a place through the medium of the photo book. Curated by Josh Brilliant, Thinking of a Place explores how photographs can be made of the familiar and unfamiliar while acknowledging the politics of representing another’s home and culture.

With over 100 books from 93 different artists from around the globe, Thinking of a Place is both an exhibition and a reading room. Visitors will have the opportunity to remove each book from the wall for a more intimate experience. Ranging from unique artist books to iconic publications, Thinking of a Place gathers a distinct selection of books that both challenges and illuminates what it means to visually encounter a place.
