L.I.E (Library of Independent Exchange) was founded in Plymouth in September 2011, conceived as a temporary arts reference library and events space.
The core aims of the L.I.E are to develop discussions and exchange, exploring the processes of publishing, collaboration, and dissemination.
L.I.E has an ever-increasing permanent collection of works by contemporary independent arts publishers and artists. Rather than presenting itself as a conventional Library, L.I.E aims to explore how a resource functions and how it can be utilised; making its collection accessible to the public through the project’s curated programme of events and exhibitions.
The NewBridge Project is pleased to present ‘L.I.E Outpost Crate No.1‘ featuring a selection of titles from L.I.E’s permanent collection, 3 Script works, as well as twenty ’10 Favourite Books’ lists, with contributions from Ed Ruscha, Katrina Brown, New Jerseyy, Olivia Plender, Charlotte Cheetham, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Jem Southam, Jeff Eaton, Benjamin Sommerhalder, Lionel Bovier, James Jenkin, OMMU, Marco Kane Braunschweiler, Layla Tweedie-Cullen, Jeremy Millar, Alec Finlay, Fraser Muggeridge, Torpedo Press, An Endless Supply, Axel Wieder.
Mark James and Christopher Green are the project’s founders and directors. They will be giving a talk about L.I.E in the project space on Saturday 2nd February from 5 – 6 pm, all welcome!
