Colophon at Signatures’ edition art fair,
Frédéric Blancart, editor and curator,
as part of ACROSS #21.

Week-end 8-9 December 2018
Le Narcissio, 16 rue Parmentier, Nice

Since 2015, thankyouforcoming runs a critic and curatorial residency program from Nice. ACROSS (scènes de province) is a collaborative, participatory and experimental project.


During his ACROSS residency, Frédéric Blancart, under the name of Colophon, contributes to the first edition of SIGNATURES, publishing and artist editions fair hosted by the Narcisio in Nice.

Colophon is a specialized bookshop dedicated to visual arts self and independent publishing, at Mains d’Œuvres, a cultural center based in Saint-Ouen, a Paris North suburban city. Colophon offers a space for non or not much identified objects. The bookshop is developing as space of discover, encounter and discussion about book and publishing objects.
As its definition in publishing vocabulary, Colophon aims to offer a panoramic point of view, constantly developing, on the publishing practices in visual arts. With Colophon, bibliophiles and novices are welcome to meet the artistic creation in action.

During SIGNATURES, Colophon proposes an artist books selection, those perceived as an extra work from another one. A little bit teasing, this selection is questioning the autonomy of the artwork. Furthermore, Frédéric Blancart will lead on Saturday 8th from 4 to 6 PM, a workshop on « how to read and/or handle an art book ».
