Reading Room will transform Venice Arts into a space for exploration and engagement with a wide variety of work by photographic artists working in the book form. From bookworks independently published by artists to interactive book installations and fine press publications, Reading Room will bring together the centers and margins of the world of the photo book today, and offer audiences a space to contemplate and investigate the photographic book form.

This exhibition is made possible with support from the Pasadena Art Alliance. The MOPLA Photo Book Exhibition is a juried, submission based exhibition featuring both independently and commercially published books by emerging and established photographers around the world.

Participating Artists include: Adam Ryder, Adriana Monsalve, Albertina d’Urso, Alexander Scott, Aline Smithson, Aliocha Merker, Ana Paula Estrada, Anna Leigh Clem, Anna Mia Davidson, Ara Oshagan, Baptiste Giroudon, Blair Kitchener, Daniel Castro Garcia & Thomas Saxby / John Radcliffe Studio, Penny Wolin, Ejen Chuang, Hiroshi Okamoto, Jeffrey Dragon, Jesse Burke, Ken Light, Kristin Capp, Kurt Simonson, Lara Shipley & Antone Dolezal, Leo Garcia, Lev Tsimring, Mark Purdom, Miska Draskoczy, Nathalie Déposé, Patrick Fraser, Petra Barth, Photographer Hal, Richard S.
