May 19, 2011: Do You Read Me?
Do You Read Me? is a collaborative art book zine project done by the Oakville Gallery's Youth Council, Bronte Youth Centre, and The Art Gallery of Ontario's Youth Council, coordinated by Sarah Febbraro, Oakville Gallery's Community Arts Programmer.
Do you Read Me? contains whole zines, artist pages and answers to anonymous question cards. Its a gorgeous really interesting project that ended up being over 200 pages long.
I interviewed Cait Harben, artist educator who worked on the project and a room full of the artists from the Oakville Galleries Youth Council whose work is featured in the book. Listen to the interview to hear about the process of putting the book together, the individual artist's practices and thoughts about the role of politics in art.
Get a copy of the book, and come to the launch at Oakville Galleries: http://www.oakvillegalleries.com/
