"In Print" Exhibition

This event has ended.

Curated by Adam Carr.

From André Breton's "La Révolution surréaliste" to printed publications offering space for artist projects today, the magazine has served as a site for artistic production for decades. In Print revolves around the magazine as a location for artwork, looking at recent instances in which artists have utilized this format in periodicals from a variety of origins. Offering a short history of the fusion of artwork and magazine, "In Print" focuses more on recent cases than those of the past, on publications whose contents are entirely available for handling and viewing by visitors. In doing so, "In Print" not only foregrounds the artists' original intention of choosing such an available context as a site for work, but also intends to encourage participation and eschew the frontal, expected relationship of artwork and viewer. Taking the form of a library shelf, with all of the included publications ordered according to the participating artists' surnames, "In Print" is the first in a series of curated bookshelf projects at e-flux reading room. Reflecting the library or bookstore, and mimicking the movement typically occurring within such domains, the inventory of "In Print" will expand over time, with the number of participating artists increasing as the exhibition travels.
