CURATORIAL PROJECTS

ə/uh/-books
Artist-run project and programme of exhibitions, workshops
and publications, a research framework for photographic
art as publishing practice.
Throughout the history of the project there has been a
questioning of how artists, photographers and publishers can experiment with and develop critically reflexive forms of exhibition practice for photobookworks.
Projects have taken on various formats ranging from installations and presentations in institutions, and the production of editions through commissions and collaborative formats.
This work has been shown nationally and internationally at 
All Inked up Kentʼs International Artist Book & Print Event UCA Canterbury & The Brewery Tap Folkestone,
