Boo-Hooray, Deadbeat Club and Ed and Deanna Templeton presented an exhibition of books, zines and related artworks by the Templetons at the 2015 Printed Matter LA Art Book Fair at MOCA.
We’ve gathered together 20+ years of rare and obscure publications, some seen for the first time anywhere. Ed and Deanna, alongside making books, have published numerous zines, some in editions as small as a couple of dozen. These flowing micro-narratives are intense snapshots into the everyday of two working artists, and hey, if you want to call them artists books we are cool with that we think.
Ed and Deanna Templeton have collaborated on a silkscreened photographic print for the exhibition, combining one of Deanna’s iconic photographs with artwork by Ed. The print will be premiered at the MOCA exhibition and sold on a first-come-first-served basis. It will also be available on the Boo-Hooray webshop for people who can’t make it to the show.
Boo-Hooray, Deadbeat Club, and the Templetons are also publishing a zine bundle consisting of reprints of some truly rare Ed/Deanna zines alongside a brand new zine by Ed. These are also available first-come-first-served.
