Pollyanna 圖書館 Library (2017–) is a research infrastructure operated by non-profit organization 221A.

Krista Belle Stewart’s work engages with the complexities of archival material through processes that allow for both intimacy and coincidence and for the atemporal meeting of actors across time. Working with video, photography, design, ephemera and textiles, Stewart straddles the gaps between personal and institutional histories through transparent mediation. Recent installations have focused on the works of geometric abstractionist Leon Polk Smith (1906–1996), a well-regarded figure in the New York art world whose Indigenous heritage was not a contributing factor in his work, or even his biography.
