Vancouver Publication to Check Out

 a contemporary art magazine published from Vancouver, Canada

I have to admit that up until know I really didn’t know that many publications that came out of Vancouver. That changed recently when I was contacted by Jeff who was looking to use a photograph I took to promote FILLIP TALKS: Stuart Bailey of Dexter Sinister who is going to talk in Vancouver Monday July 7th. I’ve copy + pasted the event info below…

But even if you’re not going to be in Vancouver Monday night, you should check out Fillip Review’s site at It sounds quite interesting if you’re tired of reading about design in the same predictable ways. This is how they describe themselves: Fillip is a publication of art, culture, and ideas released three times a year by the Projectile Publishing Society from Vancouver, British Columbia. Crossing academic, artistic, and related practices, Fillip acts as a forum for critical discussion in the contemporary arts, and situates itself as a complement and stimulus for contemporary practices and discourses.

FILLIP TALKS: Stuart Bailey of Dexter Sinister/Dot Dot Dot Magazine
Monday, July 7, 6pm

Fillip is pleased to present a talk by New York based producer, publisher, and writer Stuart Bailey on Monday, July 7th, at 6pm, at the Fillip office, 305 Cambie Street, Vancouver. Bailey will discuss his work vis-à-vis the forthcoming issue of Dot Dot Dot.

Admission is $5 or free with current Fillip subscription. Given space limitations, visitors are encouraged to arrive early to guarantee a seat. Please buzz for access, or call 604 781 4417.

About the Speaker: Stuart Bailey graduated from the University of Reading in 1994, the Werkplaats Typografie in 2000, and co-founded the arts journal Dot Dot Dot the same year with David Reinfurt. He is currently involved in diverse projects at Parsons School of Design and Pasadena Art Center.

With Reinfurt and Sarah Crowner, Bailey operates Dexter Sinister in New York. In 2006, the group produced and published Notes for an Art School in conjunction with the Manifesta 6 art school project proposed by Mai Abu El-Dahab, Anton Vidokle, and Florian Waldvogel. In 2008, the collective participated in the Whitney Biennial, representing their signature and multifaceted approach to working across the fields of production, design, publishing, and distribution.

According to the artists, their practice “involves avoiding waste by working on demand, utilizing local cheap machinery, considering alternate distribution strategies, and collapsing distinctions of editing, design, production, and distribution into one efficient activity.”

About Fillip Talks: Fillip Talks are a series of presentations that critically engage ideas and issues in contemporary art. Previous talks include Makiko Hara’s A History of Tokyo Art Speak and last month’s publishing workshop presented in conjunction with Artspeak.
