2009

The Contemporary Artists’ Book Fair is the core around which PAGES, an integrated programme of related initiatives, has developed to provide evolving opportunities through active participation; engaging artists and audiences with the possibilities of artists’ books through the varied aspects of showing and making as an introduction to the medium of the book, a self-contained form easily made and distributed. The dynamic of these initiatives not only provides an arena for the development of artists’ practice and audience experience, but is also active research in the exchange between practitioners, public and facilitators, the results of these building into a core of knowledge to inform future initiatives. In conjunction with this years fair we have invited a number of artists and curators to develop and present a series of exhibitions and performance-based works, which are listed as follows:

(sub)Missive, curated by Louise Atkinson, Corridor Gallery, 6th – 18th March
