NEW TERRITORIES & FRIENDS
For the third year running, Los Angeles & Shanghai-based curatorial platform New Territories Studio will appear at the Los Angeles Art Book Fair. We’ll present a vibrant selection from China’s indie publishing scene and beyond, from zines to artist monographs to small-run journals and ephemera, many of which have never been shown internationally before. We’ll be hosting the table with our friends from LEAP Magazine (艺术界), China’s premiere bilingual art publication.
Curator Samantha Culp will also be leading a panel discussion and presentation on indie/art publishing in greater China on February 13, at The Classroom within LAABF. Hope to see you there!
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13
11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Chinese Art and Indie Culture on Paper: Song Min & Yan You (Jiazazhi Press), Lai Fei & Zhao Mengsha (LEAP Magazine), with curator Samantha Culp
In parallel with the global renaissance in indie publishing, China has seen its own rise of art publications as a vital site of production and discourse. Ranging from critical magazines to indie imprints, artist’s books to zines and comics, it’s a small but eclectic scene that reveals much about the current creative landscape of China, and the diverse contexts of art publishing worldwide.
With guests from photography publisher Jiazazhi Press and China’s first bilingual art magazine LEAP, curator Samantha Culp will lead a conversation about this print ecosystem, its key voices and themes, and current evolution in the face of challenges digital and otherwise.
New Territories Studio will be participating in the second annual LA Art Book Fair by Printed Matter from January 31-February 2, with a selection of Chinese zines, art books and indie publishing. In a stroke of synchronicity, the fair happens to coincide with the start of the Chinese Lunar New Year – extra auspicious, which is why we’re calling our table Year of the Horse. Please stop by and celebrate by buying some books! More information below:
Year of the Horse by New Territories Studio
For the 2014 LA Art Book Fair, Shanghai-based curatorial platform New Territories Studio presents a vibrant selection of materials from China’s current indie publishing scene. In collaboration with leading Chinese zine publishers, we will showcase a diverse array of zines, artist books, experimental comics and small-run journals, many of which have never been shown internationally before. We hope to not only show but contextualize this emerging movement in China’s contemporary art/design world, and spur more exchange between Chinese zinemakers and their overseas counterparts.
