FICTILIS presents a gallery-wide installation/exhibition celebrating the art of xerography (photocopying). The Lab will transform into a pop-up copy shop that is pre-stocked with a wide selection of ready-to-copy artworks, by artists from the Bay Area and beyond. Visitors can use on-site copy machines to interact with the collection in several ways and contribute to its evolution over the course of the exhibition. We'll also be debuting the limited edition book, 10.22.38 Astoria, produced by Amber Nelson of Alice Blue Books, featuring select prints from the last installment of the show in Seattle. All proceeds from book sales go to future 10.-22.-38 Astoria exhibitions.
FICTILIS is also seeking a local book artist to collaborate on the book version of this installment of the show (to be assembled and completed after the show is over). Interested artists please contact us.
Select prints from the first installment of the show will also be displayed, including New York City artist Raphael Griswold's month-long edition of serial xerographs faxed daily from across the continent, and Los Angelest artist Danielle McCullough's 105-sheet xerographic treatment of the Google “finger spam” phenomenon entitled “Ring out wild bells!!!/ Say unto others what you would have them/say unto you, only way louder!”
