Laura Noel: Subject Matters
through October 29

Laura Noel, Daniel Clowes' Art School Confidential, Atlanta Central Library, 2011 Chromogenic Print, 20 x 16 inches

"I created a series of photographs of books that have been withdrawn from libraries. Some of these books were rejected as no longer relevant to current culture, others were battered, and some were the victim of popularity - too many copies and not enough room.

These books and papers represent time and yet, are inevitably destroyed by its passing. The librarian's "Withdrawn" stamp is like a silent slap across the face. A once loved volume is ostracized from the family home."
