Congratulations to the 2019 Publication Intensive participants

We are pleased to announce the participants in Triple Canopy’s seventh 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 3–14, 2019, Triple Canopy editors and invited artists, writers, and technologists will lead discussions and workshops with the twelve participants, 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.
