Offprint London, an independent art publishing fair is on again at the Tate Modern, opening May 20 and closing May 22.
The fair is free and focusses primarily on photography. It will showcase books, zines, vinyls, posters, prints, websites, magazines, and blogs from over 140 participants. In addition there is an events programme called Making Memeries curated by London-based group Self Publish, Be Happy that considers that sometimes now the act of taking a photo can be enough for the photograph-taker and pulls into question its distribution.
On that note, collaborations, sub-projects and publications we recommend you go and pay extra special attention to are:
- ‘The Internet Yami-Ichi‘ (The Black Market) fair brought to Offprint by arebyte Gallery that will host the exchange and work of “Internet-ish” things, face-to-face, in actual space by 20 artists who show and have distribution presence online.
- Studio Operative (hosting ‘Real State’ by Asta Meldal Lynge & Eleanor Weber)
- Book Works
- Self Publish, Be Happy
- Publication Studio
- Sternberg Press
- Morel Books
- Landfill Editions/ Mould Map
