I just got an email announcing that e-flux has opened a reading room at 41 Essex Street in New York. The reading room contains a rapidly growing collection of several thousand books, donated by numerous art institutions and individuals from all parts of the world, on contemporary art exhibitions open to the public. The books reflect developments in art of the past decade. The reading room is open for research and study from Tuesday through Saturday, 12-6 pm.
A reading room, why not call it a library.
