Nieves and Innen Zine Library at Swiss In situ
When August 04, 2016 - September 03, 2016
Where 102 Franklin Street 102 Franklin St, New York, NY 10013, USA
This August, Swiss Institute will temporarily move into a 5,000 sq ft project space at 102 Franklin Street in Tribeca, where the organization will present its programming under the name Swiss In situ. During this period of transition to a new long-term location in 2017, exhibitions and public programs will be focused on temporary structures – including publishing formats, social experiments and architectural forms – set against the fast-mutating landscape of downtown Manhattan. For Swiss In situ's very first project, independent Swiss publishing houses Nieves and Innen will bring their focus on artist-made zines to NY with a presentation of the hundreds of pocket-sized, image-based publications they have commissioned over the past 15 years. In light of the social and community-oriented nature of zine productions, Nieves and Innen have also invited a group of international collaborators and like-minded producers to exhibit their work as part of the library and to speak in workshops and artist talks about their publishing practices.
