Over the weekend of 5th and 6th March, the 19th International Contemporary Artists’ Book Fair is taking place at the Tetley in Leeds. I will be there with AMBruno and my new book ‘Shunt’ will be available, detail below.
I will also be reading at 2PM on Saturday. All welcome. Free entry.
Like buses, events arrive inconveniently spaced. This weekend I am involved with the London Art Book Fair at the Whitechapel Gallery and the 365 Drawings Open Day at OHOS in Reading.
I will be at the Whitechapel on Friday 26/9/14. My book ‘Bird Oil’ which is part of the AMBruno ‘Lists’ project and my new print edition ‘The Night Man’ part of the ‘Stills’ project, will be available throughout. Please come along. Details: here.
All the drawings made for ‘365 Drawings’ will be on show at OHOS in Reading on Saturday 27/9/14. There is a substantial series of events, performances and a banquet. I will be reading a new piece called ‘Getting There’ at 12:05. Well worth a visit. Details: here.

I have been part of AM Bruno since 2009 and taken part in many of its projects and events, including the London Art Book Fair at the Whitechapel Gallery, Project 101 video works at the LAB Gallery in New York and ‘Surfaces: Works on Paper’ at Sput+Nik Gallery in Porto.
My work for AMBruno Projects
From the AMBruno website:
AMBruno is an alliance of artists, established by Sophie Loss and Mary Yacoob in 2008, initially with MA Fine Art graduates from Central Saint Martins College of Art. The artists have diverse individual practices, including painting, photography, video, performance, printmaking and sculpture, but are brought together by a common interest in the medium of the book. Since 2009 the group’s activities has been coordinated and developed by Sophie Loss, with the advice and support of fellow members.
AMBruno has shown artists’ books in exhibitions and at events such as fairs since 2008. Since 2011, for such occasions, participants have been invited to engage with a given theme, such as Blue, One-Fold Books, Black Circle, 16, and Lines. In addition to these book works, related projects have included newly commissioned 101-second films shown in New York in 2011, an exhibition of works on paper in Porto in 2012 and prints at Multiplied in October 2013.
