Designed to accompany exhibitions, or to complement a broader program, these editions document temporary shows, provide an affordable and easily produced artwork, and allow for greater collaboration between artists and organizers. In many cases, the medium of the edition speaks to the sensibility of the greater project, ranging from from hand-bound portfolios and screenprints to photocopied zines and pdfs.
