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.

Artists include:
Christophe Canato     Coral Carter     Jackson Eaton     Eva Fernández     Sam Harris     James Kerr     Max Pam     Layli Rakhsha     Nalda Searles     Colin Story     Bo Wong
