Art day trips: Warren Neidich's "Book Exchange" at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller

neidich01

If you're looking for some culture and an investigation of patriotism with your sun this holiday weekend, try artist Warren Neidich's gorgeous show at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, a bookstore and gallery in East Hampton, New York. The central piece is a handsome steel bookshelf fashioned after a Constructivist aesthetic that houses all of the books Sarah Palin attempted to have banned from the Wasilla, Alaska, library. Whether or not these attempts at banning were successful is unknown; however, Neidich has enabled us to exert some control and rewrite history a bit in our own fashion: The participatory piece invites locals, over the course of the exhibition, to visit the bookstore bearing a red book and exchange it for one of the verboten. From 3 to 5pm today, there will be a book release for Neidich's new artist's book, The Sarah L. Palin Library of Censored Books. Fri, Sat, Mon 10am--5pm; Sun noon--4pm. Through Monday, July 5.
