Perimeter Talks w/ Shelter Press

Perimeter is thrilled to continue its new programming initiative for 2017: Perimeter Talks. Taking place approximately once a month on a weekend afternoon, the series features lectures, panel discussions and more casual in-conversations with publishers, artists, curators, designers, writers and editors. The talks explore and address various themes and issues relating to contemporary photographic, art and design publishing – helping demystify, challenge and offer insight into publishing as a medium and a practice.

Our fifth talk for 2017 is co-presented by the Liquid Architecture festival and features multidisciplinary artist Félicia Atkinson and designer Bartolomé Sanson of internationally regarded French publishing house and curatorial platform Shelter Press. Founded by the pair in 2011, Shelter frames itself as "a nomadic artist-run organisation building up dialogues between contemporary art, poetry and experimental music through publications, pedagogical experiences and exhibitions".

The talk will be followed by the launch of Atkinson's brand new artist book, co-published by Shelter Press and Perimeter Editions.

Where: Perimeter Books, 748 High Street, Thornbury.
When: Sunday August 6.
Talk: 3pm–4pm. Seating strictly limited. RSVP essential (hello@perimeterbooks.com). $5 donation on the door.
Book Launch: 4pm–6pm. Free entry, all welcome.
