Abstract

Following an international call for submissions, On Innards | Publication, by artists Richard Nash, Amanda Couch, Mindy Lee, and Andrew Hladky, was selected for KALEID 2016 Oslo. Thirty-five artists from Belgium, Denmark, France, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland and the United Kingdom were selected from over two-hundred and fifty submissions. KALEID 2016 Oslo took place at Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo, Norway’s leading National Academy for the Arts; as an artists’ book exhibition, seminar and networking event. An exhibition of the selected artists’ books was curated in KHiO’s library between 10th – 12th May to launch KALEID editions’ annual collection. The collection was promoted to an international audience at Tate Modern’s Offprint London in the Turbine Hall, and subsequent tour of venues throughout the US. KALEID editions represented European-based bookwork artists between 2009-2017; disseminating an annual curated selection of artists’ books, for leading arts institutions supporting academic research and future public access. The founder of KALEID editions, Victoria Browne, has since established an academic framework to foster publishing as artistic practice at Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo.
