BC ARTISTS - THE GARY SIM DONATION
Exhibition Jan. 23 to May 6, 2018
The Head of Library and Archives at the National Gallery, Cyndie Campbell, offered
Sim Publishing a solo exhibition at the Gallery. The show will be a bibliographic
exhibition, with the items on display selected from books, exhibition catalogues, and
ephemera donated by Sim Publishing to the NGC over the past twenty years. Over 1,000
publications have been donated to the Library and Archives, including rare and early
works dating back over 100 years.
Some of the BC Artists library not yet donated.
A printed catalogue is being produced for the exhibition, describing the background of my
BC Artists project, the research and collecting involved in the
project, and highlighting some of the featured publications. The exhibition will be an
honour for Sim Publishing.
