| | Peace, Love and Rockets
is an exhibition catalogue which focuses on musicians as publishers by examining objects such as vinyl covers, CD booklets, and posters produced by independent small labels. Nearly all the works in the exhibition were produced in the past ten years. Represented music genres include Chinese Noise music, Chilean and Latin American Lo-Fi, and 1970s DIY British Punk.
This catalogue contains a list of exhibited items, but its primary focus is illustrating the items and the exhibition. It contains fifty pages of captioned illustrations, as well as short interviews with artists and designers who work with small music labels.Click here

| | Canceled: Alternative Manifestations and Productive Failures
is an exhibition catalogue that presents a selection of canceled or otherwise prohibited exhibitions that now exist in other formats. It brings together self-produced publications in which the artists bypass formal environments (museums, art fairs, and galleries) via alternative modes of communication. These publications bring to light critical commentary questioning "established" external institutional protocol and highlight books as a mean of disseminating information in social, political, and cultural issues on a wide and accessible scale.
Each entry in the catalogue is accompanied by a short history of the exhibition, the reason for its cancellation, the steps taken to preserve and share its message, and pictures, excerpts, or ephemera from or about the exhibition.Click here
