Printed Matter at Expo Chicago

September 20 - 23, 2012

Printed Matter is headed to the inaugural Expo Chicago Sept 20-23 with an offering of classic & contemporary artists’ publications. We’re very pleased to host signings with Edie Fake and Alec Soth, and debut a new edition from Pierre Le Hors.

On the occasion of the Expo, Le Hors has produced four silver gelatin prints to benefit Printed Matter. The series of images, titled “Patterned Standards,” explore a variety of physical and in-camera manipulations as Le Hors overlays polka-dotted fabric and photographs with multiple exposures. Each 9 x 12” image has been produced in an edition of 25 each and is available individually.

Friday 5-7PM, we will host a double-launch with Edie Fake and Alec Soth. Edie will launch “Sweetmeats”:catalog/31639, a new fantasy comic book zine. We will also have copies available of the erotic comic “Thickness”:catalog/32083 with her contribution, as well as Fake’s original drawings from that issue. Soth will be signing Ohio and Upstate, the two issues to date of Little Brown Mushroom’s irregularly published Dispatch, which follows the travels of Soth and Brad Zellar across North America

The Printed Matter Booth (#950) is located within the MCA Store at Expo Chicago, Navy Pier, Festival Hall, 600 East Grand Avenue.
