Braço de Ferro

The Glasgow School of Art Exhibitions Department is currently hosting this week (2-6 Nov) a Research and Development visit by Porto and Lisbon based Isabel Carvahlo and Pedro Nora, who are Braço de Ferro.

They are currently meeting with the GSA staff, students and Scottish practitioners working with artist books, design and experimental writing.

I met with them yesterday and took them on a trip to Edinburgh to visit:

The Fruitmarket Gallery Bookshop which has a range of artist books and lots of other wonderful publications

Analogue - a brilliant art and design bookshop with a gallery too

The Scottish Poetry Library with an exhibition of tiny artists books

From their visit they will develop a proposal for a project with the GSA Exhibitions Department.

It was brilliant to visit these places, hear about their projects, and tell them about Glasgow International Artists' Bookfair and my own artists books and artistic practice.
