Artist Self-Publishers’ Fair II @ ICA, Sep 10

9 September 2016

Artist Self-Publishers’ Fair II is taking place at London’s ICA on September 10.

Following on from the success of the inaugural Artist Self-Publishers’ Fair in 2015, this year brings over seventy UK and international independent artist self-publishers for the one-day fair. The second incarnation is bigger, features artist self-publishers only, and “continues to avoid the restrictions and market dominance of much contemporary arts culture”.

The publications are considered art works, however, affordable and available, with “the ideas, images and text produced and published by artists who understand the restrictions and freedoms of the printed page”.

Artists and publishers to look out for include Ami Clarke of Banner Repeater, Cesura//Acceso, Da Thirst, Dan Szor & Racheal Crowther, Ed Lehan & Lena Tutunjian, Hannah Sawtell, Laura Yuile, Owen Piper and more.

See the ASP website for details.**

CUSS Group presents ‘Video Party: A Year in Retrospective’

12 May 2014

Johannesburg’s Cuss Group has released a retrospective video for their Video Party series.

Documenting its first year, which alone included three events showing video work by Rachael Crowther, Hannah Perry and Dan Szor, the series calls itself an art intervention, re-appropriating commercial, non-gallery spaces across the South African city.

These locations are then used to show video art produced by artists living outside the country, in an attempt to emphasise “the artistic value of hybrid cultural production” and to move away from the exclusionary nature of conventional art spaces.

Previous spaces included a hair salon, TV store and an internet cafe, while the video includes interviews with participating artists, excerpts from their oeuvre, as well as footage from some of 2013s events.

See the Cuss Group website for details. **
