Congratulations to the 2017 Publication Intensive participants

We are pleased to announce the participants in Triple Canopy’s fourth Publication Intensive, a free, two-week program in the history and contemporary practice of publication. The selected artists, writers, designers, technologists, and publishers were chosen from more than 150 applicants.

During the Publication Intensive, held June 19–30, 2017, Triple Canopy editors and invited artists, writers, and technologists will lead discussions and workshops with twelve participating students, who will research, analyze, and enact an approach to publication that hinges on today’s networked forms of production and circulation but also mines the history of print culture and artistic practice. The program takes place at Triple Canopy’s venue in Manhattan, and will include visits to studios of artists and designers, archives, and cultural institutions.

In July, Triple Canopy editorial director Molly Kleiman will teach a related course at Stacion Center for Contemporary Art in Prishtina, Kosovo, as part of the annual program Summer School as School. (Applications must be submitted via Stacion Center’s website by June 9.) And next winter Triple Canopy will inaugurate a second annual session of the Publication Intensive in Los Angeles. Join our mailing list to receive updates and the call for applications.
