I’m very proud to announce that the 2nd edition of the catalogue for the exhibition Canceled: Alternative Manifestations & Productive Failures at the Center for Book Arts is now available for sale through Half Letter Press! The Chicago-based Half Letter Press is a publishing imprint and an experimental online store initiated by the artist group Temporary Services. As a great bonus, every order will include a free copy of Temporary Services’ “Why the Exhibit was Canceled” booklet, which was featured in the exhibition as a take-away.
I’ve been a huge fan of HLP and Temporary Services for years, and many of their works have been a great influence on my own projects and thinking. If you haven’t read it cover to cover already, spend some time with their print and online publication “Art Work: A National Conversation About Art, Labor, and Economics.,” from 2009. An enduring classic for good reason.
