The HopBarn [kKo] is the labour of love by Sound artist Angie Atmadjaja and Choreographer Jonathan Poole and began with a tiny collection, slowly growing over the years art related books and DVDs that were acquired related to certain projects and exhibitions they were working on.
This collection now amounts to 334 art related books. We feel as practising artists, it is paramount and beneficial to have access to high quality books which can be expensive over years. We hope by sharing our collection, we can support local artists towards their practice.
Every month TheHopbarn will aim to add around 5-10 books to the collection. TheHopbarn is grateful for any arts related book donations to the collection.
The library is not currently available to public but only to resident artists and associated artists / curators / choreographers with TheHopbarn.
Someday when we do open our doors, it could someday be a beautiful and meditative physical place to read, find and connect like-minded people, to generate discussions and debates.
The HopBarn would like to extend a big thank you to all donors including those who wish to stay anonymous. We and all artists working here at our space have and will continue to greatly benefit from these donations.
