Folded, Glued & Printed 2008

Folded, Glued and Printed had been developed to grow from artists’ work, where artists were invited to repond to a request to submit artwork for pubilcation.

The process of curating the work starts with the artists submissions, is dialogical and collaborative and where appropriate, made visible as the publications is produced.

The publications are sold at cost and all rights remains with the artists.

Vol2

A five day curated show with 14 artists, where the space of the Newlyn Art Gallery, Penzance, UK is to be used to 'curate' the artists' work into a publication. The theme of the call for the artist was to give attention to what sits to the side of the  artist’s main body of work. This was to explore the deeper context and potential discursive nature of an arts practice, the peripheral processes and research that artists use in producing work. Activities that are essential, dynamic and paramount to the individual’s practice. Realised in collaboration with artist Michael Donnelly and designer Erwin van Wanrooy. 

Contributers: Rachel Anderson, Sovay Berriman, Michael Donnelly, Andrea Facco, Simon Jaques, Thomas Qualmann, Gino Saccone, Alison Sharkey, Becky Shaw, Joanna Spitzner, Mark Vernon, Megan Wakefield, Daryl Waller

Porned, Galled & Cheeked



Porned
Compulsive and to the point, improper, rude and possibly coarse. Repetitive behavior, unsightly prose or exposing work can be explored. Compromising opinions and work are offered up.

Galled
Opinionated and forthright, compelled with a missive to deliver. This is the space for the soap box. Here venting, accusing and demanding are all welcome.

Cheeked

Past tense back chats, wayward and charming. Contents may include conversations, insane or extreme ideas, concepts or plans. This is the space to explore ironic writing, or to present a surprising new premise or scheme.
