BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead plays host to an annual & national two day Artists’ Book Market. Over 40 national and regional artists, bookmakers, small press publishers, artist’s groups, zine artists and bookbinders will be exhibiting and selling their work direct to the public.
This two day event is FREE and accompanied by a series of artists interventions:
BALTIC Freelance Artist, Bethan Maddocks will be delivering a free tunnel book workshop on Saturday 11-12.30 and 1.30-3pm. Sunday, BALTIC Freelance Artist, Nicola Singh plans to engage book market visitors with an evolving page projected onto the wall of the book-market.
For BALTIC Artist Book Market, Foundation Press presents Unbound#3 & 4 – working with artists and musicians Chooc Ly Tan (DJ Spacer Woman) and Rachel Aggs (Sacred Paws/Trash Kit). Unbound is an ongoing series of print performances developed specifically for bookshops and bookfairs. Each Unbound performance works with an artist to explore imagery and ideas present in their work through risograph printing. At the end of each day a printed set is created which the artist performs within.
Visit and talk to the press as they print throughout each day of the BALTIC Artist Book Market or join us at 4pm for live performances.
