Presentation House Gallery, in collaboration with Publication Studio Vancouver, Slade Editions and Trapp Editions, invites you to a launch party in celebration of our new editions and publications, including the coloured vinyl LP, 10 Riot Songs, by Cranfield and Slade and a hardcover book, Karlheinz Weinberger: Jeans.
The party kicks off a month long holiday showcase and sale of prints, publications and editions, including up to 30% off on select titles in the bookstore.
The print sale features Presentation House Gallery editions by contemporary artists Cedric Bomford, Roe Ethridge, Annette Kelm, Kevin Schmidt, Jeremy Shaw, and Cheyney Thompson; rare historical photographs by Eugene Atget, Karl Blossfeldt, Walker Evans and Jacques-Henri Lartigue; prints by Vancouver street photographers Fred Herzog and Curt Lang, and more.
10 Riot Songs by Vancouver duo Cranfield and Slade features cover versions of songs about riots, recorded live at the Candahar Bar in 2010. Riot Songs is Brady Cranfield and Kathy Slade’s dystopian follow up to their 2009 LP Sun Songs.
Jeans, by Swiss photographer Karlheinz Weinberger, replicates a portfolio he designed and assembled in the mid-1950s, produced in collaboration with the Museum Gegenwartskunst, Basel, the Swiss Institute, New York and Bywater Bros Editions, Toronto.
Also being launched are two editions by Vancouver art publishers. Whole Lotta Love is a silkscreen print and artist book by Myfanwy MacLeod published by Slade Editions | Publication Studio Vancouver + I WANT IT ALL I WANT IT NOW, a poster edition by Kathy Slade produced by Trapp Editions, Vancouver.
