Book Launch: Daedalus Street - Camden Art Centre

Camden Art Centre is pleased to host Daedalus Street, a space initiated by Athanasios Argianas & Rowena Hughes.

Daedalus Street produces original projects relating to Athens as seen from elsewhere, inviting friends and colleagues to work in the city and to engage with its energy.

To mark the publication of two new artists’ books, Waves by Florian Roithmayr and Elasticity, Fracture & Flow by Rowena Hughes, a temporary installation of works will be on display in the Camden Art Centre book shop and accompanied by a collaborative meditative reading between Roithmayr and students from the University of Reading.

Organised in collaboration with 33-33.
