KIOSK at Midway Center for Contemporary Arts

Fantastic Show currently at the exceptional Midway Center for Contemporary Arts on the border of North and South East Minneapolis (east Hennepin at 5th Street). Highly recommended - be prepared to spend a couple hours if you love art, design and/or magazines.

"KIOSK: Modes of Multiplication is a nomadic exhibition of artist books, catalogs, periodicals, video and audio projects that has been continually growing as it has traveled over the past seven years. It currently comprises approximately 6,000 titles from roughly 400 independent publishers from around the world. The project provides a rich overview of activities within the rapidly expanding field of independent publishing activities from the past ten years. Consequently, it offers a broad perspective on the various models of dissemination and distribution of artistic ways of working in printed media and an idea of the diverse strategies, motivations and programs of the participating publishers’ projects."
