Distro (which is slang for an independent distributor of zines and other forms of alternative press) is a pop-up exhibition that brings together a collection of over 70 independent and self-published artists’ books with the aim of introducing the practice of artist publishing to rural Ireland. Artist’s books are not to be confused with ‘how to’ books on art, or the art book whose purpose is to display artworks made in another medium, they are publications that have been considered as artworks in their own way, such as photobooks or zines. Distro features works from a range of artists and collectives from all across Ireland and abroad.
