Sabina Lee Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition Ex Libris
Ex Libris inverts the standard practice of exhibition lending, where rare or inaccessible objects are borrowed from the vaults of various institutions for an occasional public viewing. Ex Libris is, by contrast, comprised of materials (books, images, recordings) that are publicly accessible and in ordinary circulation – as they are borrowed from the stacks of the Los Angeles Public Library. Participants took this premise as a starting point in selecting materials and devising the method and form of their presentation. Ex Libris is an experiment – an exhibition offering manifold iterations of subjectivity affecting a larger archive.

Ex Libris will be on view for three weeks -- the duration of a standard library loan. An event – a recital by Travis Diehl – will take place at Sabina Lee Gallery on May 26th, 2012. Ex Libris is organized by Simone Montemurno.
Sabina Lee Gallery is located at 971 Chung King Road, Los Angeles CA, 90012.
