Going Public: International Art Collectors in Sheffield.

Comprising five exhibitions and an international summit, Going Public brought an array of outstanding twentieth century and contemporary art to sites across the city of Sheffield last year. The shows ranged from a focused exhibition on Marcel Duchamp, to a survey of leading contemporary Chinese artists, and a presentation at Sheffield Cathedral including Jake and Dinos Chapman.
The project draws on collections from four leading art patrons: Nicolas Cattelain (London), Dominique and Sylvain Levy (dslcollection, Paris), Egidio Marzona (Berlin) and Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo (Turin).

This is the literature to accompany the project....

The main catalogue is an A5 (210x148mm) portrait format and is saddle stitched. It has a 4pp cover on our Colorset Deep Orange 120gsm (Colorset is 100% Recycled). There is a bound in 8pp section which is printed on a house gloss coated paper (I don't know which one) and this is untrimmed, so left folded at the top - see pic below- so you have to fold it up to reveal the images....
The Colorset cover featuring four die cut circles from the brand identity. Printed on an HP Indigo press using white ink which looks great against the deep orange.
The 28pp text is printed on our Redeem 100% Recycled 80gsm, which combined with the 120gsm cover giving it a nice floppy feel.The paper is uncoated with a neutral white shade giving the publication a feel which really works with the images and most importantly, the pages which are purely type.
A survey of leading contemporary Chinese artists, including Cao Fei, Yang Jiechang, Jiang Zhi, and Zhou Tao drawn from the DSL collection formed part of the project.
An interesting feature is that the booklet has a square spine, even though it is saddle stitched. This is a development by a company called Watkiss and their Spinemaster machine. For certain jobs it is a perfect way of getting a sqaure spine without having to glue bind.
The accompanying 4pp invite is on Redeem 100% Recycled 315gsm. Size is A6, portrait and is also digitally printed on the HP Indigo.
...and the summit booklet (below) is also A6 format. 4pp cover on Redeem 100% Recycled 315gsm with a 4pp text on Redeem 100% Recycled 130gsm, saddle stiched.
The identity for the project is by Dust, a multidisciplinary design collective based in Sheffield, founded by Patrick Walker. Designer of this literature is Ashleigh Armitage.

Print is by ASAP Digital who are also based in Sheffield.
