Public libraries are access points to information across discipline, hierarchy, and context. In doing so, libraries lead a campaign for egalitarian information exchange and for being a public refuge for maximal users/uses. Simultaneously, these social hubs are critiques to the supposed public-ness of free space optimized for “everyone”. 

"Public Public" examines public space in public places through the lens of art/architectural interventions and investigations. Featuring a range of media, the exhibition proposes alternative dialogues to spatial configurations that dictate contemporary civic environments.

"Public Public" is curated by Alex Priest.
