Returning for its fourth edition at Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, Offprint London will bring together around 120 independent and experimental publishers in the fields of contemporary art, photography and graphic design from around the world.
Produced by Luma since 2015, Offprint is an itinerant project held periodically in London, Paris, Milan, and Arles for independent, experimental publishers working in the fields of contemporary art, photography, graphic design, architecture, humanities and visual culture.
Each year, Offprint also organizes two fairs —Offprint Paris and Offprint London —and a series of travelling libraries. In acknowledgement of the high quality and unique publishing practices that currently proliferate in the arts, Offprint seeks to make their work more visible and available to a wider dedicated audience.
“Since its inception in 2010, Offprint’s aim has been to support independent publishing with a focus on art and design, whilst respecting the editorial, economic and institutional diversity of practices in the field. In 2018, Offprint will further enhance its
commitment by providing independent publishers with a set of critical tools (publications and training sessions) reflecting current trends and changes in the publishing world.” Yannick Bouillis (Founder, Offprint).
Throughout the weekend, Tate Modern, in collaboration with Photoworks, will facilitate a program of workshops and performances. Further details will be announced soon.
