DoBeDo contributor Dick Jewell is in conversation with curator David Campany at the ICA London on December 2nd 2015, marking the launch of his new publication ‘four thousand threads‘ (2015).
Examining the phenomena of online photo sharing, the book amasses a vast archive of photographs covering various ‘threads’, from planking to bombing and animal selfies. Much like the artist’s 1978 book Found Photos, this meticulously edited work reflects the artist’s long-term interests in communal behaviour and societal shifts.
Tickets are available from the ICA.
Jewell’s book, ‘four thousand threads’ is available to buy here.

DoBeDo contributor Tyrone Lebon is part of the ICA Off-site: Digbeth, Birmingham exhibition opening on Friday 2nd October 2015.
The three day exhibition draws on Birmingham as a centre for creativity and a source of inspiration. Participants include Fergadelic, Tim & Barry / Just Jam, Tyrone Lebon, Ben Sansbury and Ashley Williams. Lebon’s work features a 2 projector slideshow of images shot recently in Birmingham, mixed with his own archive images.
DoBeDo contributor Jamie Hawkesworth is launching his first book, Preston Bus Station.
Preston Bus Station is a body of photographs produced during sustained engagement with a site of key significance in the development of Hawkesworth’s practice.
In Preston Bus Station, Hawkesworth does not concern himself directly with the political and social concerns of precast concrete. Rather, attention is given to the myriad of people that turn structure into place.
Preston Bus Station is published by Loose Joints, an artist-run publisher and design studio founded in 2015 by Sarah P-Espenon and Lewis Chaplin.
Pre-order is available here on Loose Joints.
The third and final instalment of ‘The Spring Cleaning’ is showing works of various artists at the ‘Laundromt’, New York.
Featuring the work of DoBeDo contributors Alex Sturrock, Clare Shilland, Meshach Falconer-Roberts, and Tyrone Lebon.
