About the event:
EDITIONS CPT will showcase a selection of artworks, all part of an edition by contemporary artists that actively seek to form editions as part of their oeuvre. EDITIONS runs throughout the Open Design Festival, the 12-day citywide event of talks, workshops, tours and interactive experiences that explore how design and innovation can be used to create a more sustainable future, taking place 12-23 August.

EDITIONS CPT was formed by Gary Cotterell (editor of Ogojiii Magazine) and Zhané Warren (director & printer of Warren Editions), to promote editions and multiple art, from international and local print publishers, print studios, dealers, galleries and artists. Although grounded in the processes of traditional printmaking, EDITIONS Cape Town will aim to display the synthesis and contemporary context of editions, which now encompasses a wide range of mediums from prints to photography to artist books and 3D multiples to video – a sophisticated cultural experience.
What sets EDITIONS CPT apart from other initiatives is the particular shared qualities of editions, this being that the realisation of an artwork occurs through the collaborative relationship of the publisher, maker and artist and emphasis on production. The production usually results in highly crafted and well-realised artworks, made available to collectors through editions.
The exhibition opening on 13 August at City Hall, will coincide with a performance by Katherine Bull ‘Lessons in Transformation_The Speech’ hosted by Warren Editions, and delivered in collaboration with Katherine Bull. https://www.facebook.com/events/1092365067459999/
