We are pleased to announce that Alastair Whitton has been included in the international and multidisciplinary publication, Revolve:R. This publication seeks to transmit ideas through various forms of communication that includes postal service and printed matter. Each Revolver:R project and bookwork consists of six rounds, referring to this form of communication as ‘Revolves’.
In this second edition, poets were invited to write poems in response to the collective artworks of each Revolve. These six poems were then forwarded to filmmakers who were invited to produce short films in response to each poem. A composer also wrote a score for the project.
Revolve:R aims to support artists through the publication and exhibition of their work. With a strong focus on collaborative practice, the project facilitates communication between national and international arts communities, transcending geographic and linguistic boundaries, and is intended as a vehicle for new and responsive artistic dialogues and interactions.
Work by Alastair Whitton will be featured in the exhibition Booknesses: Artist’s Books from the Jack Ginsburg Collection at the University of Johannesburg Art Gallery from the 25th of March to the 5th of May, 2017. The exhibition, which will be one of the largest and most comprehensive exhibitions of artists’ books ever to be held worldwide, will feature 258 historical and contemporary book objects created by both South African and international artists.

Work by Alastair Whitton was recently included in the exhibition HOST | Editions Cape Town at the Open Design Festival at the Cape Town City Hall. The exhibition featured work by Willem Boshoff, Sue Williamson Ashley Walters, Sanell Aggenbach and William Kentridge amongst others. Editions Cape Town was formed by Gary Cotterell (editor of Ogojiii Magazine) and Zhané Warren (director & printer of Warren Editions) to promote editions and art multiples from international and local print publishers, print studios, dealers, galleries and artists. Although grounded in the processes of traditional printmaking, Editions Cape Town aims to display the synthesis and contemporary context of editions, which now encompasses a wide range of mediums from prints to photography to artist books and 3D multiples to video.
