The Serving Library is an artist-run non-profit organization founded in 2011 to develop a shared toolkit for artist-centered education and discourse through related activities of publishing and collecting.
The Serving Library currently resides at Exhibition Research Lab, School of Art & Design at Liverpool John Moores University, where the gallery space serves as a “satellite seminar room” to host occasional classes for university-level art, design, and writing students from schools across the world, as well as a regular series of public talks and exhibitions building upon the library's archival material.
The Serving Library is a 501(c)(3) organization in the US and a listed charity in the UK. All donations are tax deductible and we rely on contributions of all sizes from organizations and individuals.
