‘Reading Spaces’ was an exhibition of artist books and other creative publications, produced as a series of collaborations with poets and other artists. All the work is either printed or informed by letterpress printing, and explores the materiality of process, composition and reception.

The exhibition is staged to allow the various pieces of furniture to create distinct zones of reading activity and ‘introduce’ the texts to the reading audience.

Works in the exhibition include Working Papers: hone/torrent; the future, unimagine; Interference; 1962: Be Spoken To; Members Only; Secret Life; Be Spoken To; Pleasure Demolition; Tracer (you are here); Touch 000100000; Vitreous Syneresis (I see you sometimes); Swipe; and Shared Rooms.
