Firstly a huge thank you to all who came our inaugural exhibition last month. We were proud to be able to put together such a strong collection of artists and were gratified both by how many of you came to see it and the positive feedback we received. We’ll post more in the coming weeks about the response to the exhibition and also future plans for both Gasket and the Adrift exhibition.
As those of you who came to the exhibition will know, part of our commitment to the work and artists was the creation of a series of books to accompany the show. Rather than the more traditional group catalogue, Gasket decided to create a small publication for each artist. In some cases this allowed the artists to present additional work to that which was exhibited, in others it provided a chance for them to include essays or responses from other artists to enrich their projects.
In creating these publications, Gasket had the pleasure of working with London-based independent publishing house, The Velvet Cell. We hope to host a post from The Velvet Cell here in the future which talks about their work and process, but we’re grateful for their collaboration in the creation of what we feel are a beautiful set of stand alone publications.
As we hope those who have seen them can attest, the quality of paper and printing of the publications is excellent and you can preview a number of pages from each of the publications via The Velvet Cell.
We’re delighted to be able to announce that the publications are now available for purchase from The Velvet Cell individually for £7 each or as a set of 10 for £50. These can be posted to locations both here in the UK and the rest of the world.
We hope that you take the chance to collect what will be a limited run of these publications as either a reminder of the exhibition or as an introduction to the work of an exceptional group of artists.
