salon light #7 in Paris

22.–24. Ok­to­ber 2010 – Point Ephé­mè­re – Quai de Val­my – 75010 Pa­ris

cneai = or­ga­ni­ses the Sa­lon Light : an an­nu­al mee­ting of mi­cro-pu­blishers of ar­tists’ pu­bli­ca­ti­on at Point Ephé­mè­re. For its se­venth edi­ti­on, the Sa­lon Light is part of the pro­gram off of the FIAC and will ta­ke place from the 22nd to the 24th Oc­to­ber 2010. With the pre­sence of so­me fif­ty in­ter­na­tio­nal pu­blishers and 6000 vi­si­tors in 3 days, this fes­ti­ve event re­veals a de­man­ding but al­so a very ac­ces­si­ble ar­tis­tic pro­duc­tion. The 2010 edi­ti­on is di­vi­ded in­to four po­les: pu­blishers, Mot­to selec­tion, book­sel­lers and the free­bies sa­lon. It high­lights the in­ven­tiveness of the par­ti­ci­pants who put their know how in the ser­vice of trans­ver­sal prac­tices: books, ma­ga­zi­nes, pos­ters, vi­de­os, vi­nyl, web­sites …
The­se pu­bli­ca­ti­ons, of­ten with a li­mi­ted cir­cu­la­ti­on and so­me­ti­mes im­pos­si­ble to find, open new doors and crea­te new net­works in the world of pu­bli­shing. Shifted, thrif­ty and ad­ven­tur­ous, the edi­to­ri­al ap­proach of the par­ti­ci­pants in the Sa­lon Light re­flec­ts a wil­ling­ness to rethink the prin­ted ob­ject and its over­all roduction.The sa­lon is punc­tua­ted by sa­les and si­gna­tures on the stands of pu­blishers as well as by the Ma­ra­thon « 11 mi­nu­tes », a con­ti­nuing pro­gram of per­for­man­ces and lec­tures con­duc­ted by the pu­blishers, the gra­phic de­si­gners and the wri­ters par­ti­ci­pa­ting.
