Le Bouquiniste is a mobile kiosk featuring books, prints, broadsides, chapbooks, zines--all work of small & independent presses. Inspired in part by the booksellers of Paris and 4th Avenue in New York, Le Bouquiniste is a special project of Curious Matter, created to expand the audience and scope of work the gallery presents. We’re championing tangible interactions with art along with the sense of discovery that thoughtful browsing offers.
Curious Matter is an exhibition venue for contemporary visual art located in downtown Jersey City. Curious Matter exhibitions and publications evidence the pursuit to understand and articulate our individual and collective experience of the world, real or imagined. We examine fantastic notions, confounding ideas and audacious thoughts. Curious Matter strives to foster dialogue among artists at all career stages with a calendar of regular exhibitions. Our commitment extends to our audience as we endeavor to open a door to appreciating contemporary art in an atmosphere that encourages engagement and curiosity. The gallery is open during exhibitions Sundays noon to 3pm and by appointment. Curious Matter is a non-profit organization, and a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit service organization.
