During June, July and August, Arnolfini’s bookshop will be showcasing a selection of work from external artists and designers using the facilities and technical expertise on offer at the University of the West of England’s, Centre for Fine Print Research, and Arnolfini’s self-published, bi-annual journal, Concept Store.
Focusing on the close relationship between technology, ideas and making, in the arts and crafts, the CFPR is committed to the dissemination of its research – through education, training, exhibitions, conferences, collaborative projects and publication.
The centre allows access to some of its facilities to professional practitioners for the production of art and design works and the focus of the showcase features a small selection of projects produced by external artists working with the laser cutting, rapid prototyping and enamelling studios.
While Concept Store reflects upon ideas explored within Arnolfini’s artistic programme and future research projects, it is intended to be a critical platform in its own right, operating as a discursive space for commissioned texts, artists’ contributions, interviews and other experimental forms.
Issue 3, Art, Activism and Recuperation will be launched in June and will be available along with issues 1 and 2 from Arnolfini bookshop.
