About the Event
Heather Dewey-Hagborg is a transdisciplinary artist and educator who is interested in art as research and critical practice. Hagborg's work has been exhibited at numerous museums worldwide and is held in the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Welcome Collection, and the New-York Historical Society.
Oscar Salguero is an archivist, book curator, and independent researcher based in Brooklyn, NY. In 2021, Salguero curated "Interspecies Futures [IF]" at the Center for Book Arts. The show marked the first public survey of bookworks by emerging artists working at the intersection of speculative fiction and interspecies possibilities. In 2023, Salguero curated "NEO MINERALIA," an exhibition at Center for Craft, NC, that proposed considering synthetic and digital rocks as official geological specimens. Salguero is the founder of Interspecies Library.
Interspecies Library (est. 2019) is the first archive dedicated to the curation and advancement of artists’ books focused on alternative interspecies futures. The growing collection aspires to reflect our changing attitudes and acknowledgment of more-than-human worlds.
