Will Holder …for single mothers*
Simon Amstell’s “Do Nothing,” orally published; and a printed copy of Eileen Myles’ “Painted Clear, Painted Black” reproduced by Will Holder …for single mothers*
*A bearded, white, heterosexual, British male takes the liberty to represent a sense of humanity, typically expressed by women and queers. (since 2007)
Typographer Will Holder produces oral and printed publications with artists and musicians. He is preoccupied with conversation as model and tool for a shared set of publishing conditions—whereby the roles of commissioner, author, subject, editor, printer, and typographer are improvised and shared, as opposed to assigned and predetermined. Particular attention is placed on an oral production of value and meaning around cultural objects, and how live, extra-informational qualities might be analyzed, documented and scored.
Holder is currently in residence at KW, and is editor of F.R.DAVID, a journal concerned with reading and writing in the arts (published with de Appel from 2007–16, and co-published with KW, since 2017). He co-curated TalkShow (with Richard Birkett) at the ICA, London, an exhibition and event-program concerning speech and accountability. Together with Alex Waterman, he edited and typeset Yes, But Is It Edible?, The music of Robert Ashley, for two or more voices (Vancouver: New Documents, 2014). Holder is a 2015 recipient of a Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award, and as such founded uh books, Glasgow, with Emmie McLuskey.
Weekend #10: Will Holder …for single mothers is part of the project Prospectus: A Year with Will Holder.
