New in the shop: J Says by Jinjoo Hwang
If you’re in NYC, head down to Chinatown and check out the brand new Petrella’s Imports. Located at the intersection of Canal and Bowery in one of those ubiquitous silver newsstands, Petrella’s Imports is a collaborative project by artists Anne Libby, Elise McMahon and Sophie Stone.
Together, they have amassed an amazing selection of alternative and art publications and other objects from around the world. In this pic which we stole from their Facebook, you can see some of our postcards in the lower left hand corner. Very cool!
Next Saturday in Oslo: Publishing as (part-time) Practice comes to Grafill R21 taking the form of a mini-exhibition and round table discussion.
On view will be a selection of artist books and other ephemera from small publishers in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. Also from 1:30 there will be a discussion on artist publishing that we (Espen and Jessica) will be a part of. Admission to the talk is free and all the books will be on view through April 30, parallel to the Year’s Most Beautiful Books exhibition.
More information (på norsk) is here.
