The Small Press Project Event will host discussions about a range of artists’ publications, their qualities and the mechanisms that support them. There will be a Risograph publishing workshop to provide an open, hands-on collaborative experience of publishing, and an opportunity to share the most recent of artists’ publications within the context of the history of the medium in a mini artist’s book fair, including a display from the Small Press Collections held by UCL Special Collections. The event will bring together educational institutions responding to the independent publishing drive, small press artists, publishers, distributors and researchers to discuss the independent publishing movement and what it means to be making material publications in 2016.
The Small Press Project Event will coincide with The Small Press Project, an exhibition of books and publications in the North Lodge made by the staff and students at the Slade School of Fine Art. The Small Press Project publications are inspired by the Small Press Collections held by UCL Special Collections.
