part of its off-site series of events, ART2102 is pleased to
present Publish and Be Damned. Surveying an abundance of independent
publications, Publish and Be Damned demonstrates individual approaches
to making and distributing the work of artists, writers, and
musicians outside the commercial mainstream through fairs, a
touring archive, and special projects. Publish and Be Damned
illustrates a cross-section of self-published artists’ projects
produced independently of institutions and galleries and with
little or no backing other than the hard work and commitment
of the artists themselves. The publications range from magazines,
pamphlets, videos, posters, fanzines, and other ephemera. |
In the context of LACMA’s project Eat the Market, ART2102 introduces the
Publish and Be Damned Public Library, an itinerant archive with a core of more
than 150 titles. The selection changes at each new venue as local publications
and materials are added to the display.
Initiated in 2004 by Kit Hammonds and Emily Pethick, Publish
and Be Damned continues with the input of Sarah McCrory. Eat
the Market is curated by Sam Durant.
