This year’s conference will feature keynote addresses by art historian Lucy Lippard and artist-publisher Paul Chan, as well as sessions covering a broad array of subjects, including: appropriation-based artwork, intellectual property, and copyright law; arts-publishing practices in Tokyo, Taipei and Seoul; sound-and-text intermedia publication; and graphical notation.

All Conference sessions are free and open to the public, and will be held in the PS1 courtyard Performance Dome. General admission is first-come-first-seated.

All sessions are free but space is limited. Guarantee your reserved seat for each keynote address with the purchase of a $20 advanced ticket, available on Printed Matter's website here: Paul Chan (Friday, Sept. 28) and Lucy Lippard (Saturday, Sept. 29).

12:00–1:00 pm
Sound and Text: Experiments in Transmedia Object Making
James Hoff and Robert Peterson will discuss their mutual exploration of sound and text as artistic mediums, addressing both conceptual and practical issues, including the challenges posed by formats, rights and distribution, publishing, storage, and best-practices. This session will include a Q&A with the artists. Organized by Lindsey Reynolds.

2:00–3:30 pm
Appropriation and Intellectual Property
Debates on the the legal complexity of appropriated imagery have resurfaced in light of a recent lawsuit between artist Richard Prince and photographer Patrick Cariou. Artists Greg Allen and Eric Doeringer and lawyer Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento will discuss notions of "fair use" and "transformation" with our digital culture, as well as the question of how copyright law should adapt to rapidly evolving artistic practices and whether copyright law might constitute a medium in and of itself. Organized and moderated by Stephen Bury.

4:00–5:00 pm
Pecha Kucha: Artists' Publications
Pecha Kucha is the Japanese phrase for "the sound of conversation." This session will consist of ten presenters offering fifteen slides, displayed for twenty seconds each.

The quick pace and strictly enforced time limit of this session format ensures a lively, engaging, and entertaining discussion. Presenters include Anna Brooke, Carey Chiaia, Ana Paula Cordeiro, Eleni Giorgos, Mitchell Goodrich, Nick Iluzada, Maggie Portis, Jasmine Sarp, Heather Slania, and Jonathan Thomas. Organized and moderated by Tony White.

5:30–7:00 pm
Keynote: Paul Chan, "Publish to Perish"
Artist Paul Chan began publishing limited-edition books, e-books, and art works under imprint Badlands Unlimited in 2010. His questions about the viability of publishing will form the subject of this address, including: "Is publishing a form of addiction? What is a book? How is reading a book different than looking at art? Does light change the nature of what appears on paper and screen? How come I was served with a warrant for outstanding taxes? Why does running Badlands waste so much time and lose so much money? What does this have to do with pleasure?" Reserve seats...


12:00–1:00 pm

Robert Peterson is a sound artist, educator and curator from Louisiana. His work explores pedestrian ritual, daily life, sound as medicine and education as performance. The gifts, blessings, trash, and curses that come along with the transmission and reception of culture across the lines of race, religion, gender, and age are at the heart of Peterson’s work. Having grown up in Louisiana, where the sacred and the profane drink together, he is at once a part of that dialog and also a keen observer of it. He has exhibited work in Sweden, Haiti, Jamaica, Ireland, and the United States. See/listen here and here.
