A note from Hannah at Belfast Exposed on their upcoming event:
Self-publishing artist Paul Gaffney will be taking over the next edition of Photobook Club Belfast. Gaffney will present a range of works that have influenced the concept and design of his recent publication ‘We Make The Path By Walking’. While discussing his own approach to book making the artist will also provide examples of his own book dummies for visitors to handle and explore.
Thursday 19 June 5.30pm to 6.30pm Free admission All welcome
Great to hear recently from Jose Carlos Robles of the Photobook Club Alicante in Spain…
I’m delighted to tell you that we are running this month our sixth meeting, great news for us.
We are very happy because the Contemporary Museum of Art in Alicante is nowadays supporting us, offering their public library to celebrate our sessions. The Museum has a great collection itself and we are very proud to collaborate with them.
I send you some photos of the last event at the Museum.
If you do want to pop along, the event will take place Tuesday the 10th of September 6 – 7:30pm and If you could kindly email Claire on firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm attendance (or get more information) that would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks to Tono Arias of the Photobook Club Galicia and Yoshikatsu Fujii of the Photobook Club Tokyo who have sent through images from their latest meetups. Especial congratulations to Galicia as this was their inaugural meetup!
The Photobook Club San Sebastian’s inaugural event was a huge success with a great turnout and fantastic selection of photobooks, new and old. Big shout to organizer Yosigo Yosigo who also put together this wee trailer/teaser from the event and also documented each of the books brought along (which you can see below).
The Photobook Club Melbourne, organized by Stephanie Richter at the Monash Gallery of Art will hold their inaugural meetup on the 19th February. This event is free to all and will be the first in a series of 5 meetups to be held this year! Hit the jump to head to the event page or read more below:
TUESDAY 19 FEBRUARY
7–8.30PM at MGA
Come along and enjoy discovering the world of photobooks!
MGA Curator STEPHEN ZAGALA will kick off our year of guest speakers with the extraordinary work THE ROAD 1974-75 by WESLEY STACEY: a briefcase full of photobooks exploring the classic Australian roadtrip. With only two full sets of THE ROAD created by the artist this is a rare opportunity to look inside.
What to bring? If you have a favourite photobook or two bring them along to share with the group! MGA has partnered with PHOTOBOOKCLUB.ORG to promote and encourage discussion about the photobook format.
Melbourne’s first Photobook Club will meet every second month on the third Tuesday: April/June/August/October. Come to one or come to all! Everyone welcome. A different speaker or activity will feature at each meetup.
FREE event; bookings preferred email or phone 03 8544 0500
