Anne Bean: Self Etc

For the book launch of Anne Bean: Self Etc, I cut all the pages from one of the books and invited each person attending to make a paper aeroplane so that we could simultaneously launch the book.

The invitation to the launch:

 Anne Bean: Self Etc. brings together documentation of her performances, drawings, videos, installations, and sculptures, as well as writings, interviews and visual essays by the artist. A series of commissioned critical essays show her to be a prolific maker of acts, objects, and multiple ‘selves’.

This book includes extensive visual documentation of Bean’s performances, essays by and interviews with Anne Bean, Guy Brett, Dominic Johnson, Poshya Kakl, Rob La Frenais, Lynn MacRitchie, Ezra Rubenstein, and Richard Wilson, and a series of new visual essays by the artist. The book is designed by David Caines.

Lavishly illustrated and including previously unseen images, Anne Bean: Self Etc. explores and expands the nature, form and contexts that artistic collaboration can take.

This publication is the sixth in the Intellect Live book series. Intellect Live is a collaboration between Intellect Books and the Live Art Development Agency. The series is characterized by lavishly illustrated and beautifully designed books that are created through close collaborations between artists and writers, and that are the first substantial publication dedicated to the artists’ work.

The book launch is presented by England & Co Gallery, and the book has been made possible with support from Arts Council England.
