ASP3 - The Third
ICA Institute of Contemporary Art

8 July 2017
ASP3 - Expanded Programme
Following on from ASP2 - The Sequel, the time has come for ASP3 - The Third. ASP (Artist Self Publishers’ Fair) will host 70+ UK and international independent artist self-publishers for a one-day fair. As with past fairs, it will feature artist self-publishers only and will continue to avoid the restrictions and market dominance of much of contemporary arts culture.
The publications are still the artworks; affordable and available, and remain free from the fetter of the institution or gallery. The ideas, images and text are produced and published by artists who understand the restrictions and freedoms of the printed page.
With the generous help of the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London, ASP will continue to celebrate and promote artist self-publishers and their work.

ASP3 - Expanded Programme
In the ICA’s lower gallery ASP will present a trio of projects that include live-publishing, improvised music, spoken word and an exhibition of printed matter and related ephemera.
ASP Assembling Project
ASP Assembling Project is a collaborative live-publishing project that will compile, produce, print and publish contributions from ASP3 participants for the duration of the event. The publications will be available to purchase on the day.
Music for Self-Publishing
Music for Self-Publishing will consist of experimental music performances, recordings and audio interventions for the duration of ASP3. Organised by Ruth Angel Edwards with Lord Tusk, they will produce a distinctive audio accompaniement to Nervemeter and the ASP Assembling Project.
Nervemeter will present a temporary exhibition, to coincide with the ASP Fair at the ICA, primarily showcasing the work done by vendors of the magazine. There will be a series of drawings by Aidee, the first ever Nervemeter vendor; Minkie, now a celebrated artist who has recently completed a degree in fine art; and the painter Brandan Quick, a long-time friend of the publication. There will also be readings of written work by vendors periodically throughout the day, including Little Jay's Prison Diary', short fiction and poems by Michael Brady of Peckham, and Aslan's accounts of being a traveler.
Nervemeter will also exhibit a range of ephemera including posters and artwork, as well as notebooks used to gather text material that was later used in various issues of the magazine.
