Friday 26 July 2013, 6 – 9pm
Launch of ‘I can be yours’ by Keef Winter
‘I Can Be Yours’ is a self-published artist’s monograph of Keef Winter’s work in sculpture, installation and performance. The book consists of photographs punctuated by texts invited from a diverse group of contributors. It flows between images of gallery exhibitions, urban interventions and studio works.
Keef will be making whiskey sours from within a new work ‘pulpit bar’. Douglas Park, Anna Chrystal Stephens and Hannah Newell will read their contributing texts from the publication on the pulpit. Also on the night, Annabelle Stapleton-Crittenden will make a live response to Winter’s work.
