We are pleased to present OUTSOURCED, a two-part exhibition project organised by or-bits.com for Banner Repeater's serial publication: UN-PUBLISH.
Through presenting two consecutive solo projects by graphic designer/artist Tara Kelton and co-director of Museum of Vestigial Desire, Prayas Abhinav, UN-PUBLISH: OUTSOURCED explores the notion of outsourcing in its relationship with the users' cultures and logics emerging from communicating through web-based services and online platforms.
Contributing to Banner Repeater's: UN-PUBLISH serial publication, and in conjunction with the multiple modes of dissemination of artworks that Banner Repeater offers, such as free distribution of artists publications from the reading room and public space of Platform 1 at Hackney Downs rail station in London, Kelton and Abhinav have developed two new bodies of work to be experienced from different locations: at Banner Repeater project space, in the UN-PUBLISH publication printed on paper 2.04 and 2.05 and at or-bits.com.
The first part of the project will feature

Into Practice Book Sprint
Saturday 16 November 2013, 10am-5pm
Into Practice, a collective of UK-based artists, curators and researchers that exists to provide knowledge which facilitates practice, will organise a one-day Book Sprint exploring the themes of the exhibition with invited participants.
or-bits.com is a web-based curatorial platform devoted to supporting practices and dialogues around artistic production, display and distribution online. Through commissioning new works for online exhibitions, promoting critical discourses and writing on its blog and developing offsite projects in collaboration with partnering organisations, or-bits.com aims to instigate an exploration of the creative and critical possibilities of the web as language, medium and subject.
UN-PUBLISH: OUTSOURCED opens to coincide with:
The Artists' Book Weekend is an open affiliation celebration of Artist Books as a medium, and this year includes projects by The Mews Project, X Marks the Bokship, and The Modern Language Experiment.
Happening in parallel to the London Art Book Fair, it aims to complement the Whitechapel Gallery event by highlighting the medium of the Artist Book and other methods of multiple production, as well as encouraging people and spaces to put on events throughout the four day âweekend'.
The Artists' Books Weekend (ABW) is open for anyone to participate. It is an umbrella name to an Open source style festival set every year according to the dates of the London Art Book Fair. This is a project started by The Mews and run by all participating organisations.
The ABW's 2013 edition will run between the 12th of September and the 15th of the same month.
