Inaugural Falmouth Art Publishing Fair Opens this Weekend
FOMO, the first ever Falmouth Art Publishing Fair, opens at 4pm on Friday 29 September for a weekend of talks, workshops, screenings, artists' book works, performances, zines and comics and readings.
Organised by Falmouth School of Art's Senior Lecturers Neil Chapman, Gillian Wylde and Carolyn Shapiro, and Associate Lecturer Maria Christoforidou, FOMO will take place at Falmouth Art Gallery and the Library of the Municipal Buildings on the Moor in Falmouth.
The event brings together Falmouth School of Art staff and students with local participating institutions including Falmouth Art Gallery, Falmouth Library, Tate St Ives, Stranger Collective, Urbanomic, Atlantic Press, Burning House Books, BLNT Collective, Keiken and Krowji. It aims to showcase and promote publishing as an expanded practice; bringing artists, performers, musicians, illustrators, historians, graphic designers, writers, thinkers and poets into dialogue with the public and with each other towards new and unexpected working partnerships.
FOMO runs from Friday 29 September to Sunday 1 October, find out more about the weekend over on the Falmouth School of Art blog
