Exhibition — Brooklyn Shelf Life

Showpa­per, Prin­ted Mat­ter, Inc. and Swill Chil­dren invite you to Brook­lyn Shelf Life open­ing on June 19th 2012 at Brook­lyn Academy of Music, New York…

In a play­ful explor­a­tion of print as a meth­od of artist­ic expres­sion and mode of com­mu­nic­a­tion in the era of the Inter­net, we are cre­at­ing five sculp­tures that will double as repos­it­or­ies for a series of free, inde­pend­ent print pub­lic­a­tions. Thou­sands of posters, pub­lic­a­tions, and artist books from around the world will be cur­ated, fun­ded, and reprin­ted in col­lab­or­a­tion with Prin­ted Mat­ter, Inc. and Swill Chil­dren.”
