The Artists’ Book Library is an ongoing collection of Asian artists’ books and an integral part of the Arts Programme of Tai Kwun Contemporary. Artists’ books are publications that have been created as artworks, in which artists use books as a medium of artistic expression. Often published in limited numbers, sometimes even unique piece of art, artists’ books challenge the idea, content and form of traditional books. Tai Kwun Contemporary's Artists' Book Library will be open and accessible to the public, free of charge, as a source for learning and research.

Artists' Book Library is temporarily closed until 17 Jan and will be open on 18 Jan at 11am.
