    Do or DIY - a new project announcement

    We are pleased to announce that York based information as material, an artists collective that includes our very own Simon Zimmerman, have been offered a month long exhibition at one of the world's most prestigious contemporary art galleries, the Whitechapel.

    The exhibition will consolidate a year long programme undertaken by information as material as the gallery's 'Writers in Residence', and will be based on an essay, entitled Do or DIY, written by information as material as the foreword to the 2011 London Art Book Fair.

    Do or DIY uncovers a hidden history of DIY publishing that begins (in the essay, at least) with Laurence Sterne (1713-68) and ending (for now, at least) with Kathy Acker (1947-97). It concludes with call-to-action that captures the ethos of the forthcoming exhibition: "Don't wait for others to validate your ideas. Do it yourself."

    In addition the exhibition, which will open in London in spring 2012, has been selected by the crowdfunding platform as one of the nine projects it will promote throughout January, with a fundraising target of £1,500. You can donate as little or as much as you like, but for donations over £50 people will receive a signed copy of the accompanying publication with a printed credit (Thanks to...), and for donations over £500 the publication will be hand-printed - only three of these will ever be made.

    More to follow on the exhibition in February.
