Opposition to the Commodity
Institute of Contemporary Arts



Six self-publishing artists read and perform their work as a prelude to the 2019 edition of the Artist Self-Publishers’ Fair.

Through a series of presentations, artists, writers and publishers address radical notions of accessibility and opposition to the commodity. Performers include Emily Pope, Adam Gallagher, Angharad Williams, Ruth Angel Edwards, Oliver Rees and James Whittingham
