Artists’ multiples have been at the forefront of alternate means of artistic circulation and exchange for the last fifty years. Artists’ multiple production is frequently concerned with ideas of distribution, reception, value, and commerce, either to mimic, mock, or as an attempt to circumvent predominant economic systems entirely. Artists have frequently taken on the role of proprietor, retailing their works in stores, market stalls, and vending machines of their own design. Others have produced magazines, mail-order catalogues, and e-commerce sites in order to distribute works. Some have pegged the price of a multiple to value of gold while others have produced work to be given away. Reflecting these artistic considerations, the essays and interviews in One for Me and One to Share address artists’ multiples as a means for production, circulation, and reception.
Featuring essays and interviews by Nicholas Brown, Mark Clintberg, Océane Delleaux, Dave Dyment, Gregory Elgstrand, Cary Leibowitz, Roula Partheniou, Harry Ruhé, and Jonathan Shaughnessy.
