Opening reception: February 17th, 6-11pm
The value of one thing over another, the re-entrance of a communal form of commerce, and the hegemonic subversion of publishing are defining characteristics of small press’s. What happens when these artists’ books are placed in the context of an exhibition? Can they still retain their original social and distinctive tactility?
Accompanying the exhibition, curator Jesse Hlebo will be conversing about hierarchy, publishing, and small presses at the Turret Room at the Khyber Institute of Contemporary Arts on February 18th, 2011 at 7pm
