Library of the Printed Web
∞ All welcome
Launch & DiscussionMon, Mar 17th, 2014 / 6:30PM
Join us for the Providence launch of Printed Web #1, a publication devoted to web-to-print art and discourse. The 64-page newsprint features new work by artists who use screen capture, image grab and site scrape to collect and transform digital information – visual and otherwise – into analog experience. Issue contributors Clement Valla and Benjamin Shaykin will join publisher Paul Soulellis in a discussion about the issue, and more generally about the idea of an artist’s web-to-print practice.
Founded in 2013 by artist Paul Soulellis, Library of the Printed Web is a collection of self-published artists’ books, photo books, texts and other print works gathered around the casual concept of “search, compile and publish.” The collection exists as a physical archive housed in a special wooden display case on wheels in Long Island City, NY.
