Metropolis Bookshop in Melbourne, Australia will be hosting a special in-store launch and book signing this Wednesday, August 17th at 6pm to celebrate artist duo DABS MYLA‘s new book Before & Further. Visit Metropolis’s event page here for more information.
Before & Further is an exhaustive collection documenting DABS MYLA’s ambitious 2015 project, a 4,000 square foot installation takeover of a stand-alone 1930 built Spanish Revival workplace building located on the Modernica factory property. The pair fully transformed its interior and exterior with their newest paintings, sculptures, installations and exclusive furnishings from limited-edition fiberglass shell chairs and hand painted ceramics to custom-built lighting installations, all designed and created exclusively for their collaboration with Modernica utilizing the factory’s extensive technical capabilities. The fully-immersive book features behind-the-scenes photography, early shots of concept sketches, photos of the finished project, and even snapshots from the project’s launch party.
If you can’t make it to Melbourne, Before & Further will also be available soon from Gingko Press.
