In Summer 2016, BSA residents Bryan Eccleshall and Chris Graham launched a set of twenty-four books that began as a documentation of their Sans Terre/+ exhibition, a complex and disorienting installation that offered a dense re-thinking of the current refugee crisis and the various Gulf Wars that have precipitated it. The resulting books are now available to buy, either online or directly from Bank Street Arts.

Perfume as Practice returns to Bank Street Arts later this month, and will see Fine Art Perfumer Michael Borkowsky explore what portraiture would be like in a world where scent was our primary means of communication.
