The Book is a Container: MA Print Graduates present New Publication Projects
26 June 2021 to 27 June 2021 | 11am 5pm
Southwark Park Galleries, 1 Park Approach, Southwark Park, London, SE16 2UA
The book is a container for holding or transporting something, an image, an idea, a dream, a provocation, or a statement. The familiar format of cover and pages, which unfolds sequentially, is a space to share ideas, a place to collect, or a site to fill.
‘The Book is a Container’ is a publication project by our MA Print students. Over the last six months, each student has created a limited edition publication that considers the functionality of artist books and how the action of handling these objects offers an intimate experience. The publications have been made mainly at home with tools and materials at hand, reflecting the shift of working from home and the limitations many people have encountered.
The books will be gathered for one weekend in the Bermondsey Bothy in our Gallery Garden.
This show coincides with the launch of RCA2021 – a digital discovery platform, complemented by a festival of physical satellite events around London from the end of June through the summer and beyond.
