Following on from the huge success of the launch of Book Apothecary at Durham Book Festival, we are thrilled to announce a new date for our current exhibition ‘Category’.  Join us for interactive drop in workshops and exhibition of our evolving artist book museum at Culture Lab Onsite.

Book Apothecary is a travelling museum of artist books showcasing work by visual artists Theresa Easton, Yvette Hawkins, Hannah Keville, Simran Lajmi, Aidan Moesby and Stevie Ronnie who have made work responding to the theme of Category. Works have been presented inside a series of travelling modified trunks and suitcases designed by Furniture Maker Nick James.

The travelling museum is inspired by the idea of book and botanical category systems, proving that books can be visual as well as informative.
