Literary Take Over at First Site Gallery

As part of the exhibition RE/SET, at RMIT First Site Gallery, Public Street contributed a literary takeover of the exhibition, curating a small reading library of texts relating to how space is used and formed, available for visitors to read inside the exhibition spaces. As well as running our recurring reading group series, Reading Place, inside the gallery space, making use of the texts.
