Queens International 2016 Catalogue Launch

07.17.16, 11:00 am

Please join us for the launch of the Queens International 2016 web-to-print catalogue designed by Ayham Ghraowi. Responding to the increasingly intertwined relationship of printed and digital media today, the biennial exhibition features a model of publishing and distribution that develops into its maturity through post-opening contributions by the participating artists’ interaction among themselves and with external respondents. An evolving web platform generates this print-on-demand publication that has incorporated content authored over the course of the exhibition. The website—serving as a living hub for documentation, artist interviews, short-form writing, and commentary from wide-ranging respondents—will in turn comprise a publication that can either be printed onsite at the exhibition via a risograph, or accessed as a downloadable PDF. In line with the character of Queens International 2016, the risograph duplication process allows the publication to sit somewhere between a silkscreen print and a xerox copy, giving digitally formatted content a uniquely physical property.
