Statement

Location is a quarterly publication of limited edition artists' books featuring idea-based work in an array of two-dimensional media. Essentially a gallery between two hard covers, Location focuses on book-form installations and group exhibitions in print. The publishers' mission is to collaborate with visual artists to produce new work specifically suited to a page-based format. Location promotes artists to a broader audience through a portable medium while providing a book-based experience of contemporary art. An experiment in publishing, Location combines a gallery exhibition paradigm with an unmediated, compact experience of artists' projects free from editorialization. By showcasing the work unaccompanied by didactics and commercial content, Location emphasizes a direct line of conversation between the visual artist and the viewer. Location does not present documentation of artwork: artists create work specifically for each Location volume. Each volume of Location includes an editioned print with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
