We're Supporting Local Bookshops!

Apr. 08, 2021

We’re offering a FRONT-curated reading list on Bookshop.org, an online bookstore with a mission to financially support local, independent bookstores. FRONT Artistic Director Prem Krishnamurthy has put together a selection of recommended books organized around the exhibition’s three thematic through-lines, which look at labor, ecologies, and the connections between community, music, and joy. Visit our affiliate Bookshop page to browse and support independent booksellers!
