This year’s featured exhibition at the fair is: NANCY CAMPBELL: BOOKS AND PRINTED MATTER. Nancy Campbell is a British artist and writer whose work explores polar and marine environments. In 2010 she was Artist in Residence at the most northerly museum in the world, on the remote island of Upernavik in Greenland.

This year’s programme of talks and readings, running across both days of the fair is curated by writer and librarian Pascal O’Loughlin. We are delighted that Emma Bolland will be reading from a selection of our publications, including her own art-writing text LECTOLALIA, the PLACE AND MEMORY book, and our new editions which we are launching at the Fair, EAST WIND from Brian Lewis, (an excerpt of which is featured on this month’s Caught By The River), and the first of the long awaited MilkyWayYouWillHearMeCall pamphletsYou can see Emma reading from her texts and screening their related films at a recent performance at BALTIC in the window below.
