GUIDED TOUR: "EVERYTHING IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN (PORTO): ARTISTS’ BOOKS AND EDITIONS"
06 NOV 2016
Guided visit to the exhibition: "EVERYTHING IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN (PORTO): ARTIST' BOOKS AND EDITIONS", with Sofia Santos, Museum Educators.


Works by Patrícia Almeida and David-Alexandre Guéniot, Karl Holmqvist, Janice Kerbel, Sara McKillop, Kristen Mueller, León Muñoz-Santini, Preston is My Paris, Simon Popper, Erik Steinbrecher, Fritz Welch, Nicole Wermers.

‘Everything is About to Happen (Porto): Artists’ Books and Editions’ is dedicated to the most recent developments in the field of artists’ books as a medium and context for contemporary art. The exhibition presents more than 200 works ? many of them published in small, hard to find editions ? to give an overview of the most recent developments in the field of artists’ books. Through them it looks at burlesque reversals, authorship fluidity, sub-activism, unproductive labour, nonsensical and non-linear languages as tools to reaffirm and question our collective desire for collectivity. It suggests that artists’ books should be seen both as individual artistic expressions and as participants in a forum whose culture and freedom are essential to our future.
