The Eyelevel Bookstore is unique in Atlantic Canada for its dedication to showcasing artists' books, multiples, sound works, and publications from national and international artists and organizations.
As a member of the publishing consortium, Halifax INK, the Eyelevel Bookstore regularly attends book fairs such as the New York Art Book Fair and the Vancouver Art Book Fair. Selections for our inventory are made through the Eyelevel Reshelving Initiative (ERI), a biennial exhibition of artist's books and multiples. ERI 8: Inner/Outer Space is on view from May 4 - June 8 2018 at Eyelevel and 9 other offsite locations including: Beaver Sailor Diner, the Craig Gallery, South House Sexual and Gender Resource Centre, Java Blend Coffee Roasters, Seven Bays Bouldering, One Block Barber Shop, Wonder'neath Open Studios, and Pramana Yoga Studio.
In addition to these biennial exhibitions, the Eyelevel's Printed Matter Program presents lectures, publications, and residencies. Through this aspect of our program, Eyelevel has partnered with organizations such as Klondike Institute of Art & Culture (Dawson City, Yukon), Struts Gallery (Sackville, NB), the Dawson Printshop, Letterpress Gang and the Roberts Street Social Centre (Halifax, NS) to create opportunities for local and visiting artists to develop their practice in the medium of printed matter.
