The Modern Language Experiment @ The Mews

The Modern Language Experiment presents:

What is an Art Book? Volume 2

Once again we are very pleased to have been invited to be a part of the Artists’ Book Weekend, organised by The Mews Project Space, where we will be producing Volume 2 of What is an Art Book?
For this second volume we will once again pose the simple but important question What is an art book?
An Art Book today can be seen to occupy various different positions including that of a piece of theory, a catalogue, a printed exhibition, a piece of art in itself, a supplement to a pre-existing piece. It can be a proposal for the future or an examination of the present or what has passed. “What is an Art Book?” will be an investigation of what an Art Book is in terms of material and conceptual concerns. It is a collaborative project that will be produced during the Artist Books Weekend at the Mews Project Space. Artists, writers, curators, designers and other practitioners are invited to respond to the title of the project by contributing their interpretation of what an Art book means to them and their practice. Each contributor can propose text, drawings, photographs, sculpture, performance, audio recordings, video or any other concept/theory as long as it can ultimately be realised in A4 paper format and in black and white.

Probably Ping Pong @ IMT Gallery

To coincide with the current exhibition Report on Probability B, IMT Gallery will be hosting an interactive event through which Henrik Schrat and collaborators will produce a one-day comic strip.  Schrat likens the process to a live Jazz jam session in which visitors are invited to participate by creating their own part of the narrative.  According to Schrat, “every page will begin with Ping Pong, the main character, awaking, and end with him falling asleep. Every page follows the narrative of the preceding one in some sense, yet Ping Pong always awakens to another reality – finding himself drawn and handled by someone else. This references the mulitiple realities observing each other, in keeping with the source of the exhibition’s title: Brian Aldiss’ 1969 science fiction novel Report on Probability A.”  To complete the circle, a bound copy of the exploits of Ping Pong will be sent to Aldiss.

Garageland talk by Alex Michon @ Transition Gallery

Scribing Cinemawriting and painting between the frames 

Film has been a very important part of many of Transition’s publications – the most recent issue of Garageland magazine (no.14) is themed around film.
With reference to film criticism, Laura Mulvey, Cahiers du Cinema, the New French Extremity, beautiful men and much more,
Transition director Alex Michon will talk about the very particular way that artists respond to film using writing and imagery.
