Now in stock: We Go to the Gallery by Miriam Elia


Just in time for Back to School season, we have on offer some of the last copies of UK-based artist Miriam Elia’s limited edition publication, We Go to the Gallery, a hilarious take on contemporary art in the form of a nostalgic children’s primer.


From the artist’s website:

Have you taken children to a gallery recently? Did you struggle to explain the work to them in plain, simple English? With this new Dung Beetle book, both parents and young children can learn about contemporary art, and understand many of its key themes. Join John and Susan on their exciting journey through the art exhibition, where, with Mummy’s help, they will discover that real meaning does not exist, and that death is final.      

Printed in bold colours and written in a clear and cheerful tone, each book will drag families into the darker recesses of the collective unconscious, for their broader cultural benefit.


This edition of We Go to the Gallery was printed in Poland by Miriam Elia, using a famous vintage 1950s Heidelberg press located in Krakow. 46 pages. 5 x 8 inches, hardcover.

Now available in limited quantity online or at the project space for just $20 including tax, it is the perfect gift for any beleaguered art enthusiast, artist, or parent you know (if not exactly suitable for young children). :)
