The book, published 2022, documents the curatorial project The Composing Rooms which opened in London in 2010 along with several essays that capture the context of contemporary art at the time. The book captures how the internet played a significant role in the emergence of a new way of finding, making, and displaying art, as well as how that shifted over the decade.
The Composing Rooms hosted over 40 exhibitions, talks, events, and projects and exhibited over 60 artists. Relevant essays and texts in the book include those by the founder and director Ché Zara Blomfield, alongside those by artists and curators: Gerardo Contreras (Preteen Gallery), Nate Hitchcock, Yanyan Huang, Miltos Manetas, Warren Neidich, Marisa Olson, and Krystal South, with an animated .gif by Petra Cortright. The fold-out dust jacket is a uniquely commissioned limited edition artwork by Aaron Graham.RRP $35 NZD / €25 EUR / £20 GBP
