Why Do Artists Write?


In Conversation: Gavin Everall, Jane Rolo, Samuel Hasler, Katrina Palmer and Francesco Pedraglio

To celebrate the launch of Samuel Halser's first published work: O, A Prayer Book, Chapter are pleased to be collaborating with Book Works for a series of events surrounding artist's writing and publishing.

Whilst writing and publishing gives form for the exploration of varying discourses, it has remained - despite the historical significance of artists writing - a marginal, often misunderstood form of art. Artists Samuel Hasler, Katrina Palmer and Francesco Pedraglio, with Book Works’ publishers and editors Jane Rolo and Gavin Everall, discuss the use of fiction, prose and spoken word and the shift to writing and publishing within the art world.

In 2014, Book Works celebrates thirty years of publishing multiple forms of artist books. As one of the UK's most established Artist Book publishers, they support and encourage the relationship between text, image, spoken word and performance. Their artist publications blur lines between experimental prose, fiction, and exploratory discursive texts.

This event is free and no booking is required.
