Art-Information: Editorial Strategies, Text-based Formats, Publishing Contexts


Inside box for Aspen, #4, Marshall McLuhan & Quentin Fiore. Spring 1967, Roaring Fork Press, NYC

The one-day event Art-Information: Editorial Strategies, Text-based Formats, Publishing Contexts, April 26, at ICA in London, looks at acts of publishing within contemporary art and curatorial practice. Guest contributors Stuart Bailey, Dr Ruth Blacksell, Dr Jo Melvin, Dr Lucy Mulroney, and Alun Rowlands will draw on a rich variety of engagements, setting current practices against the alternative lineages of Pop and Conceptual Art. Presentations range from considerations of the various format and distribution strategies used by magazine editors and curators, to discussions of publishing, editorship and layout in (and as) practice.
Through these, contributors will highlight specific issues such as the appropriation of trade publishing channels and editorial design vocabulary; the significance of typographic layout in progressions from passive ‘looking’ into active ‘reading’; requirements for reader participation and responsibility; and the shifting notion of archival and open work within the interactive and networked platforms of digital publishing.
