NPIP Workshop at Bastard Gallery, Stockholm

April 29th, 2009

NPIP Workshop

Bastard Gallery, in collaboration with New Print International
Publisher (NPIP)
, Samuel Nyholm and Nazareno Crea, gives a four-day
workshop of analog printing technologies, for 15 students, from the
Fine art and Graphic Design institutions at Konstfack, Advertising and
Graphic design at Beckmans, and Fine art at the Royal Art Academy in
Stockholm and the ECAL in Lausanne.

The NPIP philosophy is to rationalize and control as much as possible
of the printing process and to carry out a large part of the work on
their own, which works fine as long as the edition is not too
extensive (which is generally the case in cultural contexts). The most
sensible option can also, like in the case of Dolls, a catalogue
produced by NPIP for the video artist Annika Larsson last year, be a
combination of cheap digital printing and analogue interventions,
where the printing process also includes the narrative elements of the
book. The benefits of this thinking is not only that the designer may
retain a larger share of the budget, but also allow more room for
experimentation with materials, techniques and content.

The purpose of the academy is to deepen the students and our own
practical and philosophical point of view connected to primitive
printing techniques, with emphasis on a playful approach, implemented
into rational and applied practise.

The workshop consists of four days of production, between 6th and 9th
of May and a final evaluation party on the evening of the 9th of May,
including musical entertainment, 19-23, everything taking place inside
the gallery. It will also be possible to buy and borrow various
publication affiliated to the workshop and it’s participants.

WeLcOmE!!!

The gallery is open for the public 15-19 during the workshop. 19-23 on
Saturday the 9th of May.

Lux et Veritas

April 28th, 2009

Yale University School of Art Graphic Design Department presents
its 2009 MFA Thesis Show, Lux et Veritas.

This unconventional show does not present the students’ graphic works as design objects but instead shows them as a single illuminated collage which constantly rearranges itself. Print, motion, interactive, and site-specific design will be shown through video projection. When the gallery’s lights are off, the videos provide a shared, immersive experience of designed pieces. When the lights come on, the show disappears. By flattening their pieces into a seamless surface and wrapping the entire gallery with it, the designers build a world from their work.

A companion publication presenting each student’s influences will be distributed at the exhibition.
The works the students made in graduate school, though they do not appear in the exhibition in physical form, are described by the video loops and the publication. The exhibition is a single, collaborative work where re-representational video and pre-representational reference outline the space the students’ graduate projects would occupy.

During Yale’s intense, two-year program, students build a coherent, investigative, and experimental body of work, culminating in a thesis. Though each student’s thesis project expresses a singular methodology, they share common features: the application of a visual method to studio work and the writing and design of a catalogue raisonne?. The exhibition will feature these 16 books, which contextualize the designers’ work in relation to their emerging practices. The 2009 Graphic Design candidates are: Jensen Barnes, Rachel Berger, Yeju Choi, Neil Donnelly, Ian Jamieson, Hyoun Youl Joe, E Roon Kang, Hilla Katki, Tara Kelton, Wolasi Konu, Alexander Moulitsas, James Muspratt, Daniella Spinat, Yasser Suratman, Mary Voorhees, and Ryan Waller.

Papergirl Open Call

April 28th, 2009

Papergirl is an artproject, which in the style of american paperboys distributes rolled art pieces by bicycle in the streets to random passers-by. This happens once a year, when it´s summer in Berlin! All given work is exhibited in a big show before the distribution.

Papergirl is distributed like a newspaper, but not edited or printed like one. It consists of art pieces which are rolled up together. Contributions are handed in by mail or personally and are later included in the art rolls. There are no guidelines as to format, subject matter or quantity, so originals, prints, photos, copies, texts etc. come together. Each roll contains 10-15 different works, meaning that each one of them is unique!

Deadline for contributions: June 17th

Design by Florian Lamm (http://www.ctrlc.de) & Lisa von Billerbeck (http:www.lisavonbillerbeck.de)

PRINT/pixel

April 27th, 2009

PRINT/pixel is an international conference on the shifting relationship between online and print publishing.
Both can no longer be separated, but complement each other. Yet few advanced comprehensive publication and design strategies beyond ad-hoc copy-paste do exist, and the recent crisis of print news media and advent of new technologies such as e-books and print-on-demand are about to upset the world of designers, editors and publishers. Will XML, cross-media content management systems, ePub, networked on-demand publishing and generative design soon be everyone’s vocabulary? International cutting-edge designers, software developers, publishers and researchers – many of them being all of these at once – will give insight into their solutions and discuss the future of publishing.

Public Collectors

April 24th, 2009

Public Collectors consists of informal agreements where collectors allow the contents of their collection to be published and permit those who are curious to directly experience the objects in person. Participants must be willing to type up an inventory of their collection, provide a means of contact and share their collection with the public. Collectors can be based in any geographic location.

Public Collectors is founded upon the concern that there are many types of cultural artifacts that public libraries, museums and other institutions and archives either do not collect or do not make freely accessible. Public Collectors asks individuals that have had the luxury to amass, organize, and inventory these materials to help reverse this lack by making their collections public.

Seriously Forks #3 – Åbake

April 21st, 2009

F7 et le Palais de Tokyo présentent
Seriously Forks #3, une conférence de Åbake
présentée par Benjamin Thorel.

Åbäke est né en 2000, une année qui permet facilement de se souvenir depuis combien de temps dure la collaboration de Patrik Lacey, Benjamin Reichen, Kajsa Stahl et Maki Suzuki à Londres. Quatre designers graphiques dont le travail explore divers champs de la création. à l’occasion d’une exposition récente à la Sommerset House à Londres, ils ont inventorié leur production et leurs différentes collaborations de la plus commerciale (kitsune.fr ) à la plus secrète et ésotérique. Ils ont identifié 13 thèmes de recherche. Certains seront présentés et expliqués lors de la conférence au Palais de Tokyo. Leur travail s’attache à répondre à un contexte spécifique. Ainsi, la présentation, intitulée Seriously Forks #3 (Paris) est la troisième de leur tournée 2009.

Åbäke enseigne au Royal College of Art et à la Saint Martins School of art de Londres, participe activement à la revue Seximachinery, collabore régulièrement avec des artistes parmi lesquels Aurélien Froment, Johanna Billing ou des designers tels Hussein Chalayan ou Martino Gamper (avec lequel ils partagent souvent la cuisine) et créée des pochettes de disques pour différents labels, de Source au début des années 2000 à Kitsune aujourd’hui.

Mercredi 29 avril 2009, 19h30
Palais de Tokyo, Paris.
