Riso Boto series
Riso Boto zine series launch !
Tuesday April 16, 2019, 17h-20h
Le Cheval Blanc – 809 Ontario Est, free.
A group launch for ten new Risograph zines created for the Distroboto machines as part of the Riso Boto workshops! Come out to get your copies of these rare limited-edition, numbered zines and meet the artists themselves!
Following the acquisition of a Risograph by the Atelier Circulaire artist-run centre last year, we decided to introduce this particular printing method to artists and explore its potential for use in making zines. After taking part in the workshop, the artists design their zines using just two of the limited range of colours available in Risograph printing, which also prints each colour separately on each page.
The resulting zines will exclusively be sold in the Distroboto machine located at Le Cheval Blanc. Distroboto machines are former cigarette machines that have been selling art in Montreal and elsewhere since 2001.
The artists :
Caroline Ariane Bergeron, Chloé Larivière, Emmanuelle Charneau, Hélène Delavaud, Lisa Thériault, Luc Mélanson, Richelli, Sylviane Chaurand and Julie Rocheleau.
RISO BOTO is a project organized jointly by ARCMTL and L’Atelier Circulaire, made possible in part thanks to the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
