  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

  • "In publishers’ terms, Shock and Awe – a hefty, intellectual book about glam rock – is timely." - Jude Rogers, The Guardian

Calendar

Over the past five days, Graduate Public Practice students have held a series of cafe talks
with theorist Stephen Wright, focusing on situations where “social practice” happens
and the words we use to describe it. Starting from the premise that the vocabulary
and even the genealogy of “social practice” has yet to be determined, the conversations,

held in different coffee houses throughout the neighborhood, have focused less on
what social practice “is” than “when” it takes place.  When is the social practiced?
When does a practice become social? Where does it draw its knowledge and inspiration
from? How does it engage with other practices, including the practice of theory?
Please join us for this last conversation, where these same issues will be discussed
and some of the previous days' propositions will be mapped.


House coffee and tamales will be served until supplies last so please arrive on time.
