  • ‘Artists’ Publications in Practice’ with Arnaud Desjardin
  • 11 June to 11 June 2011
  • Focal Point Gallery

This half-day workshop will focus on the production of artists’ books and the myriad ways that artists organise printed activities and projects.

It will examine the practicalities of printed matter and create a context for the distribution and release of publications.

The workshop will be led by Arnaud Desjardin, whose exhibition 'Please do not place drinks on vitrines or books' is currently installed at Focal Point Gallery and we be on show until 11 June.

Desjardin will introduce his own experience of publishing and distribution, as well as his varied collection of artists’ printed material.

As well as providing practical examples, Desjardin will discuss how artists’ networks have informed the nature of the printed material in the exhibition.

Saturday 11 June, 10.30am to 2.30pm £15 / £10 Concessions
