Keith Wilson

The Object Library

The Object Library was a collaborative, participatory installation located on the first floor of Mina Rees Library at The Graduate Center, CUNY in midtown Manhattan in 2017–20. Somewhere between a sculpture gallery and a library, The Object Library offered material artefacts as starting points for conversation and shared speculation, while selected programming engaged the public with the scholarly research and wider activities within and outside of the Graduate Center’s historic building on Fifth Avenue.
