Critical Distance at Edition Toronto 2019

October 24-27, 2019

For our fourth year at Edition, Critical Distance is pleased to present an array of editions and publications from the wonderful artists, curators, and organizations we’ve partnered and collaborated with over the past 6 years. From our current exhibition, ACCESS IS LOVE AND LOVE IS COMPLICATED we are featuring two extraordinary chapbooks by 17 year old poet Adam Wolfond, published by Minneapolis-based Unrestricted Interest. As in years past, a selection of free/pwyc publications will be available for taking and sharing, including back issues of Lola (Toronto), Studio Magazine (Harlem), and Contemporary& (Berlin). 

Finally, we are thrilled to launch two new catalogues produced in conjunction with past exhibitions at Critical Distance and TYPOLOGY: On The Surface /Susana Reisman curated by Shani K Parsons (with essay by Daniella Sanader) and Fermenting Feminism curated by Lauren Fournier.

Visit our table to see these and other editions and publications by artists, writers, and publishers we love.
