Follow-ed (after Hokusai) is an exhibition of books inspired by the American artist Edward Ruscha, collected and curated by Tom Sowden and Michalis Pichler, at the Winchester Gallery, University of Southampton.
This exhibition is part of Print Matters, a group of three exhibitions, each related to artists’ publications at the University of Southampton. These range from seminal artists’ books produced in the 1960s, a homage to the books of Edward Ruscha, through to the contemporary zine made by Graphic Arts students at Winchester School of Art. This exhibition is grouped around four themes: beginnings, narratives, interventions and constructions.
The exhibition has toured to P74 Gallery, Ljubljana, Slovenia from 11 March - 3 April 2011 and the Arnolfini, Bristol from 3 March - 30 April 2011.
