Organized by Omar Lopez-Chahoud, Independent Curator
This exhibition examines art publications produced by artists and collaboratives. The publications selected for the exhibitions each embody a spirit of collaboration and experimentation and a DIY ethos. Independent publication allows artists to bypass the gallery system, and to make art cheaply and distribute it on their own terms.
Three teams have been formed to create reading rooms at the Center. They will work with the curator to organize the installations. These teams include: Diego Fernandez has self-appointed himself as coordinator of the Chilean wing of ARTISTS AS PUBLISHERS with Rodrigo Salinas (La Nueva Grafica Chilena) and Felipe Mujica (Galeria Chilena), Ivan Navarro & Ian Szydlowski (Instituto Divorciado); Rachel Mason in collaboration with John Knuth; and Scott Hug (K-48) in collaboration with Billy Miller.
