For Book Week Scotland the DCA presented a display of books, published ephemera and zines all made by artists. The display drew upon works from a number of sources including work from the Centre for Artists’ Books (in which Yuck ‘n Yum is featured) located in the Visual Research Centre. ??Alongside these works the display included rare examples of the landmark ‘multimedia magazine in a box’ Aspen featuring work by Andy Warhol, Marshall McLuhan and Dan Graham kindly lent to Dundee Contemporary Arts by Heart Fine Art, Edinburgh and the unveiling of new books from DCA’s recent exhibitions programme by Ruth Ewan and Torsten Lauschmann.
Our wall display featured a black and white collage of past contributors works as wallpaper to our three cover artists’ (at the time), Paul Milne, Ross Hamilton Frew and Helen Flanagan original full colour cover artworks.
Our back catalogue of zines and special editions were also on display.
