OYABF is an initiative set up by publisher and books store Torpedo, based in the Norwegian capital and is being carried out at Kunstnernes Hus across 2016 monthly to celebrate its 10-year birthday and to consider via conversations, talks and book displays various aspects of contemporary publishing, including its recent revival within the art world.
Among those involved in the series is artist collective Buenos Tiempos Int., who recently curated An Evening of Poetry —reviewed by aqnb here —and are currently hosting work by Natasha Papadopoulou’s Progress on their website-cum-online exhibition space. They’ll be taking part alongside curatorial publishers FRANK and Spesial Nord, both based in Oslo, Girls Like Us (glum) from Amsterdam and Petunia who are based in Marseilles and published part i of ‘The Ages of Beatrix Ruf: A History of Power Transvestism’, a fashion editorial on power drag by Buenos Tiempos Int. back in 2014.
The second edition will be presented specifically for OYABF this June.
