CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
Print Ready VII: Stockholm Edition
Co-produced by Project Space
Curators Tracy Stefanucci (Director, Project Space and the Vancouver Art/Book Fair) and Nathan Jones (Director, Print Ready) join forces to present Print Ready VII: Stockholm Edition. The exhibition transplants the survey exhibition of recent work in art publishing by Vancouver artists to Stockholm for one night this spring. Artists from Vancouver and Stockholm are invited to submit work for consideration.
Please send the details of your proposed project or a brief description and low-res photographs to email@example.com by March 11, 2016. There are no limitations with regard to format or subject matter, though all work must be part of an artistic practice intended as artists’ publishing. Accepted submissions will be notified by March 18 and 5–10 copies of the publication/project will need to be received in Stockholm by April 15. Project Space and Print Ready are not responsible for late or lost submissions or shipping costs.
PROJECT SPACE is a Vancouver-based arts organization dedicated to publication as an artistic medium. Its main project is the annual Vancouver Art/Book Fair (est. 2012) and it also publishes artists’ books as Project Space Press. Its Monthly Open Studio exhibition series—featuring artists, writers, designers and publishers working in the realm of art publishing—is produced by a curatorial collective. Project Space and VA/BF were founded by Tracy Stefanucci.
PRINT READY is an ongoing project that promotes the work of artists experimenting with self-publishing zines and books. In addition to its biannual Print Ready exhibition series at Dynamo Arts Association in Vancouver, it hosts book and zine launches and represents artists at such events as the Vancouver Art/Book Fair. The project was founded by Nathan Jones and Michael Lachman in January 2014.
