Reading International is pleased to present ‘reading in Reading’, a series of events and exhibitions by David Raymond Conroy, Ghislaine Leung, Cally Spooner and Jesper List Thomsen, who have been invited to respond to Reading through the use of various narrative structures, closely related to aspects of the town’s contemporary culture.
Collectively, the artists have written a SUPERSTRUCTURE, which will host the group’s activities and operate as a tool to devise a number of expanded readings. The SUPERSTRUCTURE was launched on Saturday 7 October 2017 from Reading Central Library’s amphitheatre with support from Berzerk Productions and The White Dove Company.
From January to March the group presents an accumulate series of exhibitions and events, through which they explore different modes of reading and publishing. The SUPERSTRUCTURE will be published in the Reading Chronicle in January and available from Reading Central Library reception for the duration of the ‘reading in Reading’ project.
