POSTEDUNPOSTED•British Isles on exhibition with Codex Polaris at CHART leading Nordic art event and editorial platform.
27 – 29 August 2021 at Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, Denmark.
CHART brings together dedicated individuals and inspiring professionals to impact the future of the arts community in the Nordics and beyond. CHART is located in the heart of Copenhagen and presents an art fair with the leading galleries in the region, an art book fair and a broad public programme of talks, design, architecture, performances, music, as well as ongoing editorial releases.
Established in 2013, Codex Polaris is a bookarts group that creates opportunities and exhibiting platforms for artists who work with books in the Nordic region. Alongside the exhibition program Codex Polaris invites guest co-organisers to work on various networking projects, and writers to contribute with textworks to raise the profile of bookarts spanning local and international perspectives.
Imi Maufe from Codex Polaris invited Angie Butler, Senior Research Fellow at CFPR to co-curate POSTED/UNPOSTED: British Isles (2019-2020). Together they worked with 28 creative practitioners who use letterpress in the UK/EIRE to contribute to this publishing project. The resulting work spans fifty years of letterpress publishing expertise, illuminating the wealth of innovative letterpress printing that takes place across these countries today.
