Obsolete Concepts

Gallery Lambton and the Sarnia Library have a long shared history. The gallery’s collection began in the 1920s when art shows of the Group of Seven were displayed at the old Carnegie Library.  Since then, libraries have changed, moving from simple lending institutions to community meeting places. People can now access the internet, the latest DVD’s and CDs, as well as make use of electronic resources from the libraries webpage.  During this rapid shift from paper to digital format, from looking up information in encyclopedias to “Googling” it, many artists have mulled-over the notion of a bookless future. Obsolete Concepts, curated by Olivia Lam and Melissa Bennett will investigate the conventions of the book’s form.
