As an extended arm of the Friends of Archive, the artists attempt to build a community/ peer ecosystem at a time when we are all experiencing isolation, and yet a representation of the reunions with loved ones that we all fervently hope are now possible. The hosted books here are a tool for repair/comfort, a site for negotiating trust in times by binding comradeship. As you flip these artists’ books, every page of any book, every element/ symbol/ text/ imagery, the characters allow you to witness a dialogue.
