Publication Scaffold is a series of events, performances, installations, and discussions, curated by artists Michele Horrigan and Sean Lynch, and curator Jo Melvin, as part of Dublin Art Book Fair 2019 at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios.
Publication Scaffold finds practical and metaphorical ways of envisaging the process of publishing. It points to books not solely as objects, but as conversation and encounter, as discursive notions surrounding their own existence, leading to new ways of thinking about the portable, malleable exhibition format as a publication itself. The podcast, which includes excerpts from the talks and performances, is presented, and produced by artist Michael Holly.
Podcast contributors: Gareth Bell-Jones, Elisabetta Benassi, Adam Chodzko, Ruth Clinton & Niamh Moriarty, Wayne Daly, Emanuele De Donno & Viaindustriae, Ramon Kassam, Jo Melvin, Vukašin Nedeljkovic of Asylum Archive, Renata Pękowska, Cesare Pietroiusti, Juan Sandoval, Dan Starling. John Carson and Conor Kelly’s artwork, Evening Echoes, is represented, reprising its first exhibition at TBG+S in 1995.
