Cover-ed is a series of curatorial and creative interventions into and around Ed Ruscha and Mason Williams' iconic 1969 photo novel Crackers, a copy of which is held in Arnolfini's Archive. Over two months this bookwork became the script, score, instruction, and inspiration for a three-day performance of photography, a participatory performance event, an installation, an evening of talks and a new bookwork called Salad Dressing. 3 – 5th March: photoshoot and open studio, Arnolfini Reading Room. 15 March – 1st May: Follow-ed (After Hokusai) Previous re-makes, rip-offs and re-creations of Ed Ruscha bookworks were displayed in the set of the new cover version of Crackers. 24 March: Re-use, Re-make, Re-enact! An evening of talks and performative readings. 20 April, book launch and performance.
