Crisis Editions/Dane Press – Miss Read

Crisis Editions/Dane Press

Crisis Editions is the publishing program and main artistic output of artist Robin N., it focuses on reproducing and recirculating unprinted, out-of-print or otherwise hard to find materials. Robin's practice is rooted and printmaking and Crisis Editions is a continuation of printmaking's history as a tool of political art and a Robin's own interests in deep politics, obscure cultural artifacts and the semiotics of the real.

Dane Press is the printed aspect of interdisciplinary artist Kitt Peacock's practice. Their work focuses on reparative reading, re-circulating archival material to form new narratives of queerness.

Crisis Editions and Dane Press have appeared in every Vancouver Art Book Fair since 2018, the 2019 Printed Matter Los Angeles and New York Art Book Fairs, the 2022 San Francisco, Tokyo and New York Art Book Fairs. Crisis Editions was also featured in the 2022 Out of Bounds - Summer School for Artist Publishing at the Libby Leshghold Gallery.
