Spatial Awareness: Zine Launch

A zine by: Alexandre Coates, Danya Hu, Dila Yalman, Duncan Jones, Enkuush Mergen, Frances Driscoll, Gemma Gorton, Isabel Madden, Jemma Third, Jinling Wu, Luke Jones, Lumai Yeoman, Marlow Bushman, Melina Maiworm, Oliver Tao, Pei-Fen Hsieh, Yuxuan Geng.

Spatial Awareness is a new zine that explores relationships with space, art and architecture. Each page contains a piece created by different artists as part of The Fruitmarket Gallery’s Fresh Fruit programme. Artists were initially motivated by the current redevelopment and refurbishment of the Fruitmarket’s Market Street site. The zine collects a series of insights into the artist’s personal experiences with art, architecture and the spaces that surround them.

Through drawing, collage, writing and poetry Spatial Awareness explores the sometimes challenging relationships between people and spaces. Expect insights into the purpose and ownership of space, feminism and architecture, safe spaces, accessible spaces, how buildings make you feel, how spaces hold memories of what happened in them, and how architecture invokes associations across different cultural festivals.

A limited edition of 120, Spatial Awareness can be purchased on the night and will be on sale at Bookmarket thereafter. Come along to meet the artists and find out more about their work.

Zines are small self-made publications. Quick and cheap to produce, they have a radical underground history where anything goes and different voices can be heard. Fresh Fruit have worked on the zine in collaboration with the Edinburgh Zine Library and Out of the Blueprint over the last six weeks. The programme has included visits to recently redeveloped rts and cultural spaces in Edinburgh to look at their buildings and exhibition programmes – Collective and Edinburgh Printmakers – and an exclusive peek at the Fruitmarket’s building development in progress.

The zine has been risograph printed at Out of the Blueprint. This is an eco-friendly print process with a unique aesthetic. Invented in Japan in the 1980s, it’s popular with graphic designers, artists and illustrators.

Fresh Fruit is The Fruitmarket Gallery’s peer-led programme for young people aged 16-25 to work together and with artists to make and share art. For more information on the programme see www.fruitmarket.co.uk.

Fresh Fruit: Zine Making

FRESH FRUIT: ZINE MAKING

Saturdays 14, 21, 28 September and 5, 12, 19 October 2019, 2-4pm, various locations. Free. 15 places for 16-25 year olds.

A zine-making project about your experience of art and architecture, conceived as part of Fresh Fruit, The Fruitmarket Gallery’s peer-led programme for young adults aged 16-25. Zines are small self-made publications and can be about anything – what you did last week; the music or art you like; or political, personal and social issues. Quick and cheap to produce, they have a radical underground history where anything goes and different voices can be heard.

In collaboration with the Edinburgh Zine Library and Out of the Blueprint, you will design and produce a collective zine to be presented in The Fruitmarket Gallery bookshop.

In the context of The Fruitmarket Gallery’s building refurbishment in 2019-20, the programme includes visits to recently developed arts and cultural spaces in Edinburgh to look at their buildings and exhibition programmes. We’ll also take an exclusive peek at The Fruitmarket Gallery’s building development in progress.

Creative content for the zine is up to you. No prior experience is necessary and you’ll be supported to develop ideas and pursue your interests to make a collective publication that could include exhibition reviews, photography, doodles and creative writing. Roles on the project include design and production of the publication, so there’s something for everyone interested in writing, drawing, art, buildings and professionally producing work for public display.

The project takes place over six Saturday afternoons followed by a launch event, and you can come along to one or all of the sessions. Book in below.
