Collection
Provisions’ collection offers a unique context to study social change subject areas and topics not easily found in mainstream bookstores, public libraries or the Internet. It is international in scope and perspective, diverse in its voices, and balanced in its commitment to illuminating movements, experiences and struggles for social change. The collection supports the idea that social change is a broad-based endeavor best served by a wholistic and inclusive approach. The value of Provisions' collection lies also in its attentiveness to the intersections between arts and social change, where inspirations for future social models are emerging. The collection is a critical resource for Provisions' ongoing exhibitions, educational and research programs. The inclusion of books, articles and other research materials in exhibitions is a hallmark of Provisions' curatorial strategy.
