Pest Publications Launch

9 July 2009 / 18:00 - 20:00

More on Pest: The three Pest publications are the outcome of a 12-month international research project on how artists can work within alternative spaces by Preston-based artists Rebecca Chesney, Robina Llewellyn and Elaine Speight. The research took Pest to many artist-led projects throughout the UK as well as Toronto, Budapest, Lille and Amsterdam. The third and final publication deals with artist-led projects initiated in the public realm and includes artwork by Martin Hamblen and text by Sophie Hope and Pest. To find out where to pick up a free copy of Pest visit:
