VALENTINE'S Presents

RAKISH LIGHT

Rakish light is an artist-run press that useS two salvaged high-capacity lithographic offset presses (an AB Dick 350 and a 360, both made sometime since the 1950's....). The presses and their operators, brian o'connell and deirdre o'dwyer, will be in residence at valentine's through march to implement a series of collaborations.

Real print came out of a last-minute invitation-based call to artists to design a poster to express the combination of urgency, anxiety, and ultimately hope for renewed commitment born of the the present moment. rakish light gave the artists roughly a week to respond, a choice of 2 of 6 predetermined colors, and 9 x 12 inch print size. they set themselves a production deadline of january 20. the stamp "not for sale" appears on the back of each poster, and the roughly 100 copies of each are in the hands of the contributing artists hands to distribute as they wish.

what remains of the production process will be on view at valentine's this sunday, january 22nd. located in a shopfront in cypress park, valentine's will present interior concepts by artists and designers on its stage. rakish light is the first such interior concept: a working commercial-capacity print studio taken to other endS.
