Art/Text Clearinghouse Project:
What dynamic results can occur when artists and writers publish books in collaboration? This was the wager put to Western Australia six months ago by Lethologica Press. This exhibition is the result of this project, that encouraged artists and writers to meet, work together and publish books using conventional and new digital print technologies. The result is a myriad of artistic combinations producing publications that span small limited-edition handmade art books, to visual artist catalogues with critical essays, to short-run digital and ‘Print On Demand’ books.
Artists and writers include:
Eleanor Leonne Bennett Denise Brown Nandi Chinna Liana Joy Christensen Jane Coakley Thea Costantino Emmanuela Dos Santos Dias Michael Farrell Vivienne Glance Marie Lochman Jamie Macchiusi Graeme Miles Scott-Patrick Mitchell Mitchell bros Sean Morris Mark Parfitt Perdita Phillips Gail Robinson Flavio Rosa Nalda Searles Andrea Smith Nyanda Smith Dianne Souphandavong Kathryn Souphandavong Gemma Weston
Western Australian Photographic Book Showcase
This exhibition features a survey of contemporary photographic books by Western Australian photographers, substantially about, or produced in, Western Australia. Shining a spotlight on the richly diverse range of photographic publishing in Western Australia’s was the impetus behind this exhibition. From emerging to established photographers, large books from leading publishers to small self-published publications and catalogues, a spectrum of work is included.
