Exhibition Information

Publishing is a crucial part of Artist-Run Centre activity in Calgary, an intriguing chronicle of our history, and an ongoing testament to the vitality of our cultural activities. For this special presentation, Stride exhibited books, catalogues, publications produced and collected over our 18-year history, with generous contributions from the National Artist-Run community for a panoramic view of publishing practices across Canada.

The Art Book Fair exhibited publications from our publication history, archives and from organiztions from across Canada. The success of the book fair was made possible by the participation of over 20 artist run centres, galleries, and artists.

Their generous donations are added to our archive and will be available to the public, Friends of the Stride Gallery and to other cultural institutions.
