Requests and Antisongs

Edited by Mason Leaver-Yap and James Richards


This publication Requests and Antisongs has been produced on the occasion of a new sequence of exhibitions by James Richards taking place across three international venues, beginning at Bergen Kunsthall (26 February – 3 April 2016), then Institute of Contemporary Arts, London (21 September – 13 November 2016), and finally Kestner Gesellschaft, Hannover (3 December 2016 – 5 February 2017). The most significant on Richards’ work to date, this publication operates as an extension of the shows themselves, transposing strategies of his exhibition-making into the rhythm of printed matter.
