In Conjunction with

A project by

In Conjunction with is a book-project in collaboration with Conor Donlon, owner of DONLON BOOKS and artist Verina Gfader. During E:ventGallery’s year-long programme of Victorian Gardening a selection from Donlon’s bookshop is installed at the gallery. Donlon has been invited to respond to the theme of ‘Victorian Gardening’ and to extract from his huge source of art-related books some relevant materials. Further contributions are by artists and writers in cooperation with Donlon. The selected books/items are displayed at E:vent, accessible during the gallery’s opening hours.
