From 2004 to 2009, WPA's executive director Peter Nesbett and his partner Shelly Bancroft published the internationally distributed, bi-monthly magazine artonpaper--dedicated to artists' books, editions, and ephemera. They exhibited the magazine at ArtBasel Switzerland, The Armory Show, the New York Art Book Fair, and elsewhere. They will talk about the various micro-communities that exist within this art world subculture, and how they intersect with or circumvent the mainstream.
