This collaborative exhibition and workspace environment organized by artists Robin Cameron and Jason Polan provided free and open access to thousands of images from the collections of Cameron and Polan. Visitors were invited to come in during gallery hours and use these images—which included manuscripts, advertisements, prints, original drawings, and more—as raw material for their own artworks, which were displayed on the walls of Esopus Space for the length of the exhibition. Polan and Cameron also created a limited-edition book featuring visitors’ artworks, The Assembled Picture Library of New York Book, that was available at the closing reception on March 18, 2010.
