Why Riso? – a debate and an exhibition

Grafill has collaborated with Norsk Risoforening to host a debate and an exhibition at Tøyen Startup Village. We wish to get an overview of riso printing in Norway and discuss why we are using this medium.

The Debate:
The debate will focus on how the risograph is used in Norway and abroad, and maybe some ideas for the future og the medium. The panel will consist of Paul John, Jessica Williams, and moderated by Ann-Kristin Stølan. Paul John is the founder of the galley and art publisher Endless Editions in New York. Jessica Williams is an artist an the publisher at Hverdag Books in Oslo. Ann-Kristin Stølan is a designer and cultural worker, and the head of Bergen Art Book Fair.

The Exhibition:
We have invited riso printers from all over Norway to submit prints and publications; commercial works as well as art projects. On display until June 20th.

The event is free. The debate will be held in English. Welcome!

Address: Tøyen Startup Village, Hagegata 22 (Tøyen torg), Oslo
