macro to micro – milan

April 19, 2017

It’s always lovely to discover that you have a book being featured in an exhibition, in this instance Philippa’s work will appear in Milan as part of the 34th Anniversary – Artists’ Books Archive.
An International Artists’ Books Exhibition from Macro to Micro.

Unfortunately she has no idea which book is being exhibited, although we suspect it could be The Inherited Sewing Box (2nd edition) – with illustrations by Jantze Tullett.

The exhibition will run from 25th May – 30th June 2017 and  is curated by Fernanda Fedi and Gino Gini. The Artists’ Books Archive in Milan was created in 1983 and is one of the most significant Archives in Italy.

Eye magazine recently uploaded a post about Barrie’s Typographic Dante.

The piece talks about the starting point for the project – which began when he was a final year student at the Chelsea School of Art, way back in 1989.

The first roughs and preparatory sketches for Canto I.

Planning the Letterpress overprints in detail.

The original ‘note to self’, which led to a project that has carried on over the next 28 years (and counting).

The Typographic Dante is on display at the National Museum of Print, Dublin, until Wednesday 19th April and the exhibition has recently been reviewed by newsfour.ie.

The Private View for the Typographic Dante took place at Dublin’s National Print Museum last Thursday.

Brenda Dermody is a graphic designer, and design educator with an interest in typography, she represents Ireland on the education team of the International Society of Typographic Designers. Brenda was instrumental in bringing the show to the Museum and spoke about Barrie’s career and the stories behind the work on display.

The work looked wonderful in the setting of the gallery space and quickly drew people in to Dante’s journey.

CBUQO005 (9 of 216)

‘The exhibition introduces experimental, forward-thinking publications by more than 60 Canadian and international publishers, designers and artists. Common to these one hundred avant-garde manifestations of the book is a unique attention to both form and content, and how they inspire one another. The exhibition hopes to underline the importance of the material, experiential and aesthetic qualities of the printed book, a subject more current than ever despite lamentations of its mortality’.

This exhibition will be remounted in June at the first edition of the Toronto Art Book Fair.

A new gallery space for contemporary art has opened in Brussels; the Société. A former factory (the Société Bruxelloise d’electricité), built in the early 1930s, the first exhibition intends to create a dialogue between contemporary digital art and 1960 concept art, ‘through the common denominator of semantics’.

The invited artists are Cory Arcangel, Aram Bartholl, Vuc Cosic, Alec de Busschere, Alessandro de Francesco, Sebastien Delvaux, Gabriele de Vietri, Frederic Fourdinier, Jason Huff, LAb[au], jan Robert Leegte, Jurg Lehni, Caroline le Mehaute, Michel Mazzoni, Steven Pippin, Studio Nand, Marius Watz and our very own Barrie Tullett, who made a special edition of the Poem to Philip Glass for the exhibition.

Barrie has been invited to submit some work to TEXTfestschrift at the Bury Art Museum, Lancashire.

The exhibition will be themed around ‘the notion of constructing memory, using the material of language’.

IMG_1356

Of the two pieces he’s working on, one deals with the translation of an experience into a ‘recording’ of the event that we keep in our heads and can no longer compare to the original – our memory relies on information being encoded, stored and retrieved, but that process in itself creates a version of the event that is altered in the manner by which it is processed. The on/off firing of our synapses, being as unlike the original experience itself, as a half-tone print is to the original photograph. Similarly, the memory itself can be altered during the ‘recalling and retelling’ of a story. It can be amended, degraded, embellished in all manner of ways, consciously and subconsciously until it becomes something quite different. In the same way that the elements of letterforms might be able to be deconstructed and reconstructed in various ways to create new words.

‘Our memories are constructed.’

IMG_1352

The second piece is inspired by a quote from Allyson Strafella – ‘Memory changes the story of an experience’. Here the text is taken from an essay on memory and slowly altered until it becomes something quite new – a transition from the original story to a new re-telling of an experience which in turn will create a new memory.

making (a small contribution to) the difference

Land of the un-free...

The Caseroom Press have done their bit for the Magna Carta celebrations here in Lincoln.

Artist Ruth Ewan has been developing a series of workshops with young people from The Meadows Primary School, which resulted in a series of slogans, text works and drawn maps.

Once the texts had been selected, Ruth sent the texts, layouts and colour palette, ready for us to match and typeset with our Letterpress type.

The texts are currently on show at the Project Space Plus, here at the University.

We’d like to thank Fenner Paper for their support with the project.
