Motto pops up at IMA


Art, Design, Events

On August 15, at Brisbane's Institute of Modern Art, Berlin-based art-book merchants Motto are creating a one-night pop-up store to launch Making Worlds—an anthology of writings on art and science-fiction edited by Amelia Barikin and Helen Hughes. Head along to meet Amelia Barikin, Joe Shakespeare (Motto), and designer-publisher Brad Haylock (Surpllus, Melbourne).

A little more about the publication from Motto...

Making Worlds: Art and Science Fiction is a collection of new texts by artists, curators, art historians and writers who are self-confessed science fiction fans. The linking point is the idea of science fiction as a platform for the building of alternate art histories. This collection is concerned with the ways in which science fiction might be performed, materialised or enacted within a contemporary context.

Contributions by:

Adrian Martin, Amelia Barikin, Andrew Frost, Anthony White, Arlo Mountford, Brendan Lee, Charles Green, Chris McAuliffe, Chronox, Damiano Bertoli, Darren Jorgensen, Dylan Martorell, Helen Hughes, Helen Johnson, Justin Clemens, Lauren Bliss, Matthew Shannon, Nathan Gray, Nick Selenitsch, OSW, Patrick Pound, Philip Brophy, Rex Butler, Ryan Johnston, Soda Jerk & Ted Colless.
