Print Work As Collective Work
A conversation with Print Ain’t Dead (Arielle Gray & Cierra Michele Peters), Press Press (Kimi Hanuaer, Valentina Cabezas, & Bomin Jeon) & Black Studies Reading Room (Jovonna Jones) moderated by Abigail Satinsky

This conversation will focus on platform-making that highlights and centers around the creative contributions and cultural production of immigrants and people of color in print. Each of these groups & projects work collectively to study, research, engage in archives, and produce new work that critically assesses racial and cultural politics in print culture and creates new models of production and distribution. Thinking about publishing as the act of gathering a public, panelists will reflect on their process in working intentionally and collaboratively with this as a goal. This conversation is in conjunction with Bookworks, an exhibition on artist-made books on view at Tufts University Art Galleries with an installation by Press Press.

12:30pm
Collective Reading of Avid Readers Publication Organized by Jack Henrie Fisher/Other Forms

“Avid reader” is a collocation — a phrase of two or more words that accompany each other more often than would occur by chance. Avid Readers is an event to convene a group of different readers according to something other than chance, something like desire (the latin root of “avid”).

Avid Readers is an experiment in reprinting and at the same time is a script for a collective reading. It is an elliptical out-loud construction of a theme in print. Avid Readers reproduces not only words but also the form of words in print. We read together not as a ritual but instead as the lucid collective enunciation of the material texts assembled.


Avid Readers is an event/publication that has been presented by Other Forms with different material and in different venues for the last year, including at art book fairs in Mexico City, Athens, Berlin, and Chicago.  Other Forms is creating a new publication for the Boston Art Book Fair.

1pm
Contributors Inc. Workshop
Workshop Led by Mimi Cabell and Phoebe Stubbs

Contributors Inc. mine the content pages of magazines of art and culture to reveal the hidden structures of the canon, making interventions, publications and workshops. During the workshop at Boston Art Book Fair we’ll investigate, via a hands on session with magazines, critical questions about editorial design. What are the links between editorial content and different funding structures? How do we know who paid for the articles we read? Who are magazines of art and design for?
2pm
Women of the White Buffalo | Deborah Anderson Panel moderated by Anabel Vazquez-Rodriguez

This discussion explores a new feature documentary film of the Native American Lakota Nation, produced and directed by photographer, artist, and art director Deborah Anderson, who traveled to the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, home to the Oglala Lakota Nation with a focus on the Lakota women, the backbone of the community and keepers of their ancient wisdom. Anderson’s film documents the ongoing rising up against the forces that continue to suppress them. Photographic stills from the documentary project will be on exhibition at Leica Gallery Boston November 07, 2019  - January 12, 2020.
3pm
Building a Creative Community
Presented by Converse
Moderated by Austin Bryant


Through collaborations, campaigns, and partnerships with a variety of artists, Converse has fostered its own evolving creative community. Join us for a panel featuring some of these artists discussing the importance of community within the creative world. There’s usually no “how to” guide for navigating obstacles like taking on big assignments, networking, and pitching clients. Instead, we tend to lean on our friendships and connections to guide us. We’ll focus on how each of the panelists have drawn from mentors, peers, and mentees for challenges like these during their career. Featured artists on the panel are photographer/director Taylor Rainbolt (LA), wardrobe stylist/brand consultant Karolyn Pho (LA), and photographer/director Daniel Regan (LA).
4PM   
The Changing Landscape of Media Coverage of the Arts
Moderated by Maria Garcia
WBUR’s Maria Garcia moderates a panel on the changing landscape of media coverage of the arts in Boston (and beyond).  The panel will consider recent changes in focus, personnel and platforms at WBUR and The Boston Globe, both in who is covered and how they are covered (on the air, online, in live events), and will look at the impact of new forms of media coverage of the arts, as well as new relationships between the media and our arts institutions and our histories. Panelists include Palace Shaw and Ariana Lee, co-hosts of The Whitest Cube podcast, and Amber and Daughter of Contrast, co-hosts of the podcast Hoodgrown Aesthetic.

Publishing As Practice As Resistance
Artist Talk with Paul Soulellis

Printed Web 6 (queer.archive.work) is the final issue of Printed Web, a series edited and published by Paul Soulellis since 2013. It's an urgent act of publishing that closes out one archive to begin a new one—queer, radical, and as yet, unnamed. It’s an assembling of queer methodologies, with a particular view towards network culture, failure, and refutation

2:00pm   
Creating Space
Panel discussion moderated by Jameson Johnson, founder and editor in chief of Boston Art Review, and Ellen Shakespear, co-founder of Spaceus

This panel will explore the spaces, organizations, and publications currently working in Boston to make room for art engagement in the city. 

3:00pm   
Localized Vernacular Name Writing: Text on the American Landscape
Talk and Historical Contextualization by Alex Lukas

Using images and content from his Written Names zine series–names written in nails in 1969 and 1970 along a now-abandoned stretch of train tracks in Cambridge, names written in stones outside a California ghost town and more–artist/publisher Alex Lukas talks about his investigation into localized vernacular name writing traditions. Looking at graffiti historically as a tool of both empowerment and colonialism, Lukas presents examples ranging from Pompey’s Pillar in Montana (the last physical remnant of the Lewis and Clarke Expedition) through WWII’s iconic “Kilroy Was Here” (purportedly started in a Quincy, MA shipyard), into the development of pseudonym-based style writing in the late 1960s. As part of his larger examination of text on the larger American landscape, Lukas will focus on Boston’s street art and graffiti subculture, coupling their development with histories of gentrification and urban redevelopment, the legacy of school desegregation, and larger social histories of the city.

4:00pm
Extended Syllables
Sound and spoken word event with Abdul Fattah Ismail
