Launch of TALK, issue 4 of Small Night Projects’ text-based art publication. This is the first international launch of the publication at the Librairie Yvon Lambert on 19 March 2024 from 6 to 8pm.

An exclusive box set bringing together the four issues of the collection, TONE, TOLD, TEXT & TALK, will also be available during this event.

Working directly with artists, estates and galleries, the publications include significant international artists who use text in their practices. 24 artists are represented across all four issues:

Jack Pierson, Laure Prouvost, Mark Verabioff, Isobel Wohl, Laura Fitzgerald, Alan Phelan, Fiona Banner, Gardar Eide Einarsson, Claire Fontaine, Jaki Irvine, Darran McGlynn, Walker & Walker, Orla Barry, Tony Cokes, Erik van Lieshout, Adrian Piper, Paul Roy, Cesar van Pinsett, Cem A., Darren Bader, John Giorno, John Latham, Naomi Sex, Susan MacWilliam.

Issue 4 TALK (our first international launch at Librairie Yvon Lambert, Paris) mixes the historical and contemporary, working with the John Giorno Foundation in New York, and the Flat Time House London on behalf of John Latham. Giorno and Latham (early pioneers in text-based art) are set against more contemporary international artists, who have gone out on a lexical limb in their deployment of text in a world becoming increasingly self-conscientious of the meanings, definitions, and free delivery of words in the public sphere.

We invite you to come and find out more on 19 March, 6-8pm, at Librairie Yvon Lambert, where a launch and introductory discussion to the project will take place with the co-editors. We will discuss the project in light of its local context and the international artists who have generously acknowledged our conceptual and critical aims by accepting our invitation.

We are thankful and thrilled to launch our latest issue TALK and this limited edition box set at Librairie Yvon Lambert and very grateful to Culture Ireland for funding this international venture.

Who are Small Night Projects?
Small Night is a studio, in a garage, in the tail end of Ireland, which, for the last four years has screen-printed artists’ ideas and images for dissemination through zine and exhibition. It is a modest setup, one beset by technical constraints and limitations, but with raw possibilities.

“Small Night” infers the crunch of the all-nighter, the self-inflicted deadlines, the chase of time to find a small place to work outside of big daily life. Small Night is a product of a love and nostalgia for printed artist pulp, and a deep criticism of our online dependent and less physical art scene.

With such emphasis on the “physical”, we only sell the journals at live launch events in the presence of the editors and sometimes the contributing artists. The small run of 130 copies per issue, and large A3 format, are ways in which we perform the importance of the physical in art.

The publications are priced low to allow dissemination and access, with screen- printed reproductions of original artworks that are affordable and collectable.

Previous launches were held in Dublin at Temple Bar Gallery and Studios TONE issue 1; The Royal Hibernian Academy TOLD issue 2; The Douglas Hyde Gallery TEXT issue 3; and The Hugh Lane Gallery TALK issue 4.
