On Saturday 29th October, HSP did a talk as part of KLICK Oxford-Leiden’s exhibition, Blue Fades into the Invisible, which is on display at OVADA Gallery until 13th November. Our talk touched upon various subjects, from the inspiration behind the press, a (very) brief history of British publishing as well as a discussion of our aims and intentions. We explored how letterpress printing worked and explained some of the thought processes behind the design of IRIS and THE DIVERS. It was a pretty awesome afternoon, and enriching to hear Tommy Watkins discussing his development as an artist and broader comments on the contemporary state of art.
KLICK is an international art project offering a platform for young artists from Leiden and Oxford. In 2016, the two cities will have been twinned for 70 years. Inspired by this friendship, KLICK brings together young artists from both cities to honour our shared history and forge new links through exchanges and exhibitions.
We were honored to be asked and recommend going to check out the exhibition! For more information: http://www.klickoxfordleiden.com/exhibitions.
