its debut tour in 2001 and enjoying great success, the Projet MOBILIVRE-BOOKMOBILE
project is an annual touring exhibition of artist books, zines and independent
publications. The project travels across the United States and Canada
drawing audiences in public spaces of various urban and rural communities.
In April 2003, a new collection of 300 book works will hit the road in
a converted vintage Airstream trailer and visit community centers, schools,
festivals, artist-run centers, libraries, and book stores all over North
America. Visitors to the BOOKMOBILE will witness an outstanding collection
of book works by a diverse range of artists and writers, in all stages
of their careers.
MOBILIVRE-BOOKMOBILE project is a grassroots media initiative which is
run by the BOOKMOBILE COLLECTIVE; a dedicated group of volunteers with
headquarters based in Montreal, Canada and Philadelphia, USA. Members
of the COLLECTIVE work together, rotating responsibilities throughout
the year, to plan the tour.
the BOOKMOBILE will be heading to San Diego on October 26, 2003!
