We recently had the pleasure of visiting the artists’ book collection at the Chelsea College of Arts. Thanks to Gustavo Grandal Montero for the tour and for maintaining such an amazing and invaluable collection.
On Saturday and Sunday, LCBA ran a series of events and workshops as part of the Grand Opening Festival of the new Foyles flagship bookshop on Charing Cross Road. A big thank you to everyone helped out, to Foyles, and to Esme Winter (http://www.esmewinter.co.uk/) for donating their beautiful pattern papers for the workshops.
To mark the launch of our latest publication – ‘Please Come to the Show’, edited by Museum of Modern Art Bibliographer David Senior – we have invited Berlin-based Bar Vulkan to host an evening devoted to celebrating the exhibition invitation card, a key yet often overlooked element of exhibition-making.
David Senior’s wide-ranging selection of invitation cards and flyers from the Museum of Modern Art Library from the 1960s to the present will prompt remarks from book contributors, designers, artists and publishers including Ruth Blacksell, Sara De Bondt, David Crowley, Juan Cruz, Gustavo Grandal Montero, Will Holder, Antony Hudek, Patrick Lacey, Kaisa Lassinaro, Marysia Lewandowska, John Morgan, Fraser Muggeridge and Clive Phillpot, among others.
Please Come in the Show Tuesday 10 June, 6.45pm ICA Studio £3/£5
