Bulletins of The Serving Library #6

The Serving Library / Sternberg Press

Posing as a retroactive non-catalogue for the group exhibition, White Petals Surround Your Yellow Heart, this issue takes fashion as its nominal theme. The group exhibition presented the work of 24 artists engaged with clothing, adornment, and self-presentation to highlight the inventive design, tactical implementation, or sartorial sense by which we multiply and complete our personalities. Artists included: Hilton Als, Lynda Benglis, Bernadette Corporation, Leif Elggren, Dexter Sinister with Halmos, Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven, Karen Kilimnik, Irena Knezevic, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Erin Leland, Wardell Milan, Paulina Olowska, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Seth Price, RAMMELLZEE, Nick Relph, Carissa Rodriguez, Aura Rosenberg & John Miller with Frank Lutz, Nader Sadek, Frances Stark, Catherine Sullivan, Scott Treleaven, and Amy Yao. THE SERVING LIBRARY, founded in 2011 by Stuart Bailey, Angie Keefer, and David Reinfurt, is a cooperatively-built archive that assembles itself through publishing. Foldout exhibition summary by ICA curator Anthony Elms, and bulletins from the edges of the fashion world by Stuart Bailey, Sarah Demeuse, Eli Diner, Brian Eno, Chris Fite-Wassilak, Sanya Kantarovsky, Angie Keefer, Robin Kinross, Adolf Loos, and Perri MacKenzie, Nick Relph, Joke Robaard, and Kuki Shûzô.
