Artists' Book Market

BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art

Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 June 10.00-17.00 FREE          
This two day event is FREE and accompanied by a series of artists interventions:

The Library Rave / Chloe Spicer
Saturday 18 June 11.00-13.00 Level 2 Library
Rave in the library to the bookish anthems of Fahreneheit 451, The Library of Babel and the Dewey Decimal System over music, as you dance with books and hand held disco torch in this interactive installation, or audio book silent disco (a sort of book club club night). Wear your entry wristband, drop an e-book, and become books by way of sensory overload.

The Astonishing Polar Tombola / Nancy Campbell
Saturday 18  June 12.00-15.00 Level 1 Entrance
Artist Nancy Campbell invites you to play The Astonishing Polar Tombola, a quick interactive game that uses language to explore issues of environmental/cultural change and extinction. Select a card at random from the tombola, discover its meaning and then contribute to a growing display of words and concepts that humanity might be better off without.

Sound Book Project / Amy Sterly
Saturday 18  June 14.00-15.00 Level 1 Cinema
Using books as instruments, art and music collective, Sound Book Project, exploit the tactile nature of books in surprising ways to create a performative soundscape. Wound, sprung, strummed, slapped and thrown, the books speak for themselves, triggering emotional and sensory responses.

Unbound #1 & #2 / Foundation Press with Nicola Singh and Zassō Fūkei
Saturday 18  & 19  June 16.00-16.30 Level 1 Cube
Foundation Press present two new one-day print projects with artists Nicola Singh (Saturday) and Zassō Fūkei (Sunday). Working within the time limits of the market’s opening hours, participating artists will pursue their own visual language through the riso print process – designing and constructing two entirely printed stage sets that will host live performances each day at 4pm.
Foundation Press is a Risograph press and publishing facility run by the Foundation Art and Design Programme at the University of Sunderland, it supports both students and artists to create new outcomes and initiatives in print.
 
A brief history of zine making / James Wilkinson
Sunday 19 June 13.00-14.00 Level 1 Cinema
Drawing from his own collection, James Wilkinson takes us through a brief history of zine making. Hear about the Science Fiction zines of the 1930s, through to the advent of the Xerox machine which spawned underground punk zines and made a huge impact on the Riotgrrrl movement, and ending with the place of zines in today’s internet based Information Age. The talk includes an opportunity for questions and discussion and a special zine to take away for free.

DRAWN INWARD: Palindromic Artists' Book Intervention / David Faithful
Sunday 19 June 15.00-17.00 Level 4 Viewing Terrace
On a chalk-drawn circle on the BALTIC balcony, 9 participants move sequentially around the circle, drawing firstly the OUTWARD then the INWARD views of the quayside from their lofty perch.
The completed palindromic artists' books will be exhibited at the BALTIC Library.
 
The Astonishing Polar Tombola / Nancy Campbell
Saturday 18  June 12.00-15.00 Level 1 Entrance
Artist Nancy Campbell invites you to play The Astonishing Polar Tombola, a quick interactive game that uses language to explore issues of environmental/cultural change and extinction.

Nuclear Family Caravan / Lindsay Duncanson, Marek Gabrysch & Lukas Gabrysch
Nuclear Family present a selection of images, sound and video works created by the Duncanson & Gabrysch family during a tour of the UK’s16 sites of working  and decommissioned nuclear power stations. At each location planned activities such as, drawing, bird watching picnics and sandcastles took place. The journey revealed the often remote beauty of the landscapes that house these concrete monoliths, but also the complexity of the debate that accompanies their nuclear story.
