Artexte at Papier 14

April 25 – 27, 2014

At the corner of Sainte-Catherine West and rue Clark.

Artexte is pleased to be a collaborating partner of Papier 14, the contemporary art fair of works on paper. On view and available for purchase will be our three most recent publications:

Bucky Ball, by Daniel Canty (2014), $75.00
Call Ampersand Response, by Micah Lexier and Michael Dumontier (Nieves, 2012), $38.00
The Dictionary of Received Ideas, by Derek Sullivan and Gareth Long (2011) $40.00

This could be your last chance to buy a copy of the increasingly rare Bucky Ball, wrapped in a custom-designed silkscreened poster. Printed in a limited edition of only 50 copies, Bucky Ball collects the initial chapters of a “transtemporal auto-science-fiction” novel, which the author has been developing since 2008. Its story and structure are inspired by the ideas and life of comprehensive design scientist Richard “Bucky” Buckminster Fuller, inventor, amongst other improbabilities, of Expo 67’s geodesic dome, and of an ill-fated teardrop-shaped car, interweaving them with the events of a science-fiction-fuelled youth lived in 1980s montreality.

 

Also on display will be a special selection of artists’ books. Drop by to learn more about the richness of Artexte’s collection.
