Hot off the Press:
Here is a sneak preview of CJ and Stephen's collaborative piece, created specifically for PRESENTS.
CJ has been working with text based work for some time, often applying the written words directly onto walls and responding to the architecture of a particular space. For example she exhibited a number of text works in the 2009 show PERFORMED at Wysing Arts Centre.
Stephen, from A Two Pipe Problem, has taken one of these texts, Anya, and has creatively interpreted it through the Letter Print process to create this new A4 poster, which will be exhibited as part of PRESENTS at Wysing Arts Centre opening 10 April 2010.

Aid & Abet has been invited to participate in PRESENTS at Wysing Arts Centre.
Artist-led initiatives and studio groups from across the Eastern region have been invited to re-locate to Wysing for six weeks in an unusual take on the established art fair model.
This will be our first public outing as Aid & Abet after a year of writing funding applications behind the scenes and generally setting ourselves up, so we are very excited to launch our initiative!
For PRESENTS we have chosen to work with London-based Letter Press, A Two Pipe Problem who have designed us a fantastic new flyer and created a new printed text work with our very own founding member, CJ Mahony.
Alongside these new works A Two Pipe Problem will be showcasing a selection of their printed matter including posters, Stone Canyon Nocturne as well as launching a new publication, Exquisite Corpse.
PRESENTS opens on 10 April 4-6pm
