Making long-term relational artworks through shared acts of public telling, A Published Event invite you speculate a brave new world of publishing as art practice. Beyond their hydrographic scores, performance libraries and mineralogical fictiōnellas, A Published Event launch Tender, a bold, international collaboration that seeks intimacy through sociality, collaboration and trade. Tender explores publishing as a daring act of relation through 3D knit technology and the borderless terrain of the blockchain. This fascinating symposium explores a near future, minting hybrid non-fungible tokens (NFTs) as proxies of care.

Wendy Morrow is a dancer, teacher and collaborator who grew up within a family of dancers, trained at the Australian Ballet School in the early 70s before pursuing a career as a professional dancer in Australia and overseas. She has performed with the Monte Carlo Ballet, The Scottish Ballet, The Sydney Dance Company and Danceworks and as an independent artist she has been at the vanguard of integrating dance with other forms for most of her career. Her work is deeply rooted in the kinaesthetic and the presence of the imaginative body.
Fayen d'Evie is an artist and writer, born in Malaysia, raised in Aotearoa/New Zealand, and now living in the bushlands of unceded Dja Dja Wurrung country, Australia. Her projects are often collaborative, and resist spectatorship by inviting audiences into sensorial readings of artworks. Fayen advocates blindness as a critical position that radically agitates ocularnormative biases, offering methods for navigating intersensory conversations, the tangible and intangible, hallucination, uncertainty, the precarious, the invisible, and the concealed. With artist Katie West, Fayen co-founded the Museum Incognita, which activates collective readings of neglected and obscured histories. Fayen has participated in many national and international exhibitions, residencies and collaborations.
Paul Mylechrane is a partner in Public Office, a collaborative research, design & development practice focusing on the intersection of physical and digital publishing. We prioritise work in close collaboration with artists, curators and cultural organisations. Rather than an aesthetic or style; a context and project specific solution is sought out for each individual commission. With a practice rooted in publication design, our digital projects focus on exports to printed matter, custom tools and software for content creation and dispersion; and experiments in autonomous publishing in the peer-to-peer space.

Initially trained in science and then photography, her studio and research practice is focused on geologic time and where this intersects with our own human timescales: as found in our bodies, their materiality, and our subjective histories through colonialism and archaeology. Dividing her time between Melbourne and Berlin, she was the 2017 Georges Mora Fellow, Melbourne, and received first prize in the 2020 Neukölln Art Prize, Berlin.
Ilana Halperin, born in New York, is an artist based between Glasgow and the Isle of Bute. Her work explores the relationship between geology and daily life.

She was the Inaugural Artist Fellow at National Museums Scotland. Ilana Halperin: Felt Events is forthcoming from Strange Attractor/MIT Press.
