Print stuff – independent print & publishing fair

Mills, Jamie ORCID logoORCID: (2017) Print stuff – independent print & publishing fair. [Show/Exhibition]


Print Stuff is an independent print & publishing fair held, for the past three years at the De Grey Rooms, York. Crossing between illustration, textiles, graphic design, photography, poetry and comics, the curated event champions the interdisciplinary space that printmaking and self-publishing provides. The fair functions as an affordable space for artists and publishers to exhibit and sell their work, start conversations and promote an authorial approach to contemporary print. The event was started in 2017, with over 50 exhibitors showing work and free monoprint workshops on-site run by Leeds Print Workshop with approximately 900 visitors throughout the day. The 2018 event also included a series of exhibitions held across York in the lead-up to the fair itself (at Fossgate Social, Kiosk Project Space and Random Encounter) and welcomed around 1200 visitors on the day. The 2019 event was held over 2 days, with talks and workshops across the weekend from exhibitors and academics in the field of print and self-publishing, as well as featuring over 50 exhibitors and an exhibition of artists' work held at York College. The Print Stuff project has sought to provide a platform for contemporary, self-authored work in order to seek connections between disciplines and explore the potential of printed matter as a unifying factor of creative practice. Over the past three years, we have been able to situate photobooks alongside comic artists and more traditional printmakers in order to establish a dialogue about the value, role and future of the printed form.
