IN NUMBERS : SERIAL PUBLICATIONS BY ARTISTS SINCE 1955
Jan 25 - Mar 25, 2012
In Numbers: Serial Publications by Artists Since 1955 is a survey exhibition of the often-overlooked genre of serial publications produced by artists around the world from 1955 to the present day. From the rise of the small press in the 1960s, followed by the correspondence art movement, where artists exchanged art by post, to the DIY zine culture in the 1980s and early 1990s, professional artists have always seized on the format of magazines and postcards as a site for a new kind of art production.

Joshua Simon gives a talk in relation to a newly commissioned text, Shockwork: the Selfie and the Labour of the Overqualified, written to coincide with the ICA exhibition Journal. Simon examines the selfie and its recent emergence and proliferation, as a symptom of our late capitalist contemporary society.
