Assembling Project

Free from the fetters of the institution: a short guide to London’s Artist Self-Publishers’ Fair 2017

6 July 2017

The third edition of ASP (Artist Self-Publishers’ Fair) is on at London’s ICA on July 8.

The event brings together both British and international artist publishers, in an effort to “avoid the restrictions and market dominance that affects much of contemporary arts culture.” Made to be affordable and accessible, the artworks/books are all produced and published by the artists themselves, free from the “fetters of the institution or gallery.”

The event will be host to over 70 artists, including 24 Hours in the Sky53 Beck RoadAmi Clarke and Isaac OlveraPatrick GoddardHannah SawtellEmily PopeArt Against Art , Behind the XDa ThirstRacheal CrowtherSunridge Avenue ProjectsJean-Michel WickerThe Nervemeter and Leon Sadler, among others.
