The Booklyn Art Gallery is pleased to present Awkhold, a publication, and corresponding show, featuring: Annemieke Beemster Leverenz, Christine Buckton Tillman, Sam Kalda, Andrew Liang, Aimee Lusty, Becca McCharen, Asa Osborne, Jan Razauskas, Jason Roy, Ryan Jacob Smith, Crystal Stokowski and Erin Womack.
Awkhold is a portfolio of unbound contributions by 12 artists, produced in an edition of 150, on the condition that each artist is responsible for reproducing his or her own work.
The artists are not given any conceptual or stylistic theme. Instead, the work is united in its expression of each artist's process when confronted with the challenge of producing multiples. Alike in their willingness to participate, the artists nonetheless work in varied styles and media; their submissions range from 150 photocopied prints to series of 150 unique drawings.
A companion exhibition at Booklyn Artist Alliance works to provides further context for its printed counterpart. The same twelve artists were invited to submit work that will interact with or inform their piece in the publication, widening the lens of the project.
Awkhold is the seventh in a series of group exhibitions dedicated to providing self-publishing artists, who generally share their work through zines and other printed matter, with a platform for exhibition, experimentation and exploration outside of the printed format.
