Art Byte Critique is excited to announce a collaborative book arts exhibition between Tokyo and St. Helens, England at Launch Pad Gallery in Yokohama

Reading Between The Lines:
Tokyo/Yokohama and St. Helens Artists’ Books and Zine
September 21 – October 1, 2018
Exhibition Hours:  Fri., Sat., Sun., Mon. 1:00 – 7:00 pm
Launch Pad Gallery

Established in 2012 in the Tokyo/Yokohama area, Art Byte Critique responds to a desire for a community of artists interested in sharing ideas and feedback about their studio process.

Since 2014, Art Byte Critique artists have been exploring various modes of expression through artists’ books and zines. At the same time, Art Byte Critique established a connection with artists in St. Helens, England through artist Joan Birkett with the intent to develop relationships and collaborations.

This connection has happily borne fruit in 2018. Art Byte Critique artists and St. Helens artists organized a collaborative exhibition of artists’ books and zines at the Eccleston Community Library in St. Helens and the World of Glass in St. Helens this past spring. These works will also be on display at Paper Gallery in Manchester, England as part of another collaborative exhibition entitled “Turning the Page” from September 29 – November 3, 2018.

“Reading Between the Lines” at Launch Pad Gallery in Yokohama is the first collaborative artists’ books and zines exhibition for Art Byte Critique and the St. Helens artists in Japan. This exhibition will feature recent works and new works created by a number of artists for this exhibition.

In the spirit of bookmaking and collaboration, “Reading Between the Lines” will be hosting a series of workshops and events by the artists. We want to give visitors a chance to learn more about bookmaking and try their hand at bookmaking.
