Print Ready's mandate is to provide a small survey of contemporary self-publishing projects in a gallery setting. Special curatorial consideration is given to work that demonstrates "the artist's hand" including (but not restricted to) the incorporation of drawing, hand-lettering, collage, hand-binding, unique alteration and experimentation with print technology. Priority is given to works published within the past year.
Individual artists are limited to one entry; collaborative projects may be considered as a separate entries. Artists may submit multiple collective publications.
Artists are requested to provide an example image of their work and/or a link to their web page, along with a few sentences of description of their art practice or submission piece. Please indicate the format, size, and any special considerations for installation of the submitted work.
Artists are required to provide one copy of each work/publication for installation. **Please note: This work will be on display for public viewing and, as a result, is expected to show signs of wear during the course of the exhibition.
Artists are invited to supply additional copies (five suggested; 20 maximum) of each work exhibited for sale on their behalf.
***Print Ready is open to artists incorporating sculpture or other non-print material into the exhibition so long as it relates directly to their publication/work. If special arrangements for installation are needed, artists must contact and receive confirmation with Print Ready prior to the submission deadline, due to limited exhibition space.
***There is no entry fee for Print Ready. Artists receive all funds for works sold on their behalf.
*** All work must be picked up the day following the exhibition unless prior arrangements are made with Print Ready. All publications not retrieved become property of Print Ready.
