Locus+ are celebrating 20 years of innovative visual arts projects and publications at the 2013 Venice Biennale. At the Ludoteca La Luna nel Pozzo, we will be launching a special limited edition print portfolio by five outstanding artists as a fundraiser to enable us to commission more exciting projects in the future.
Since 1993 we have had the privilege of working with some of the world’s most interesting artists to realise over 170 ambitious and thought-provoking projects from the ground-breaking Search by Wendy Kirkup and Pat Naldi, and the heartbreakingly beautiful watercolours of Cornelia Hesse-Honegger’s Nach Chernobyl, to the ephemeral Repens by Anya Gallaccio and the sheer wonder of Chris Burden’s Ghost Ship.
The beautifully produced Print Portfolio features commissioned lithographs by Fiona Banner, Chris Burden, Mark Dion, Cornelia Hesse-Honegger and Richard Wright.
Each print is in an edition of 30. There will be 15 portfolios available containing all five artists’ prints and 15 prints available individually. The prints have been produced by Hole Editions
We are also delighted to be launching a new multiple by Douglas Gordon entitled I was born with… commissioned especially by Locus+ and Little & Large Editions
From the Locus+ Archive will be a selection of photographic portraits by John Kippin including the two above of Douglas Gordon (2012) and Mona Hatoum (1986).
We would be very pleased if you could join us:

Locus+ are proud to announce that in partnership with Great North Run Culture, we have been successful in our application to Arts Council England’s Catalyst Arts: building fundraising capacity scheme.
Interest in the scheme was particularly high with the Arts Council receiving over 164 applications. The scheme was open to organisations working in a consortium to develop fundraising skills. There are 62 successful applicants benefitting 217 organisations.
Alison Clark-Jenkins, Regional Director, Arts Council England said:
“Locus+ and Great North Run Culture will be using the Arts Council’s Catalyst investment to attract income from new external partners and funders, along with exploring sources of potential investment which are unique to each organisation. The Arts Council’s Catalyst scheme is aimed at fostering the innovation and collaboration needed in the arts sector to safeguard its future — this partnership will go a long way to helping two north east-based visual arts organisations to achieve this.”
