The exhibition, A Reintroduction Library, creates an archival library of San Pedro's natural history, mostly pertaining to water, plant life and landscape. Works in the exhibition by artists Katie Bachler and May Jong explore the complex histories found in the natural landscape and wilderness when it interacts with the constructed environment. Bachler and Jong explore the role of the library and archive in our ever-changing cultural and historical understanding of the wilderness. Bachler and Jong also consider new possibilities and potentialities of thinking about wilderness and our relationship to the wild, all through the lens of San Pedro and its environs.

This interactive library for scholarly and imaginative research holds real and fictive documentation of maps, land deeds, and plant specimens. Viewers are invited to sit with, look at, touch, read, add to and contemplate the materials on hand. The interdisciplinary works reintroduce viewers to an imagined past, present and future state of San Pedro and Southern California. A Reintroduction Library invites viewers to not only peruse the past, but touch, smell and physically engage the natural world around them.
