KALEID editions advocates public special collections and represents European based artists who do books. Founded in 2009 by Victoria Browne, artist and printmaker, KALEID editions began as a project space for exhibitions and book launches in Shoreditch, London. In 2011 KALEID editions moved to the Southbank Centre to curate Art on Poetry, a six month season of artists’ books and exhibitions at the Arts Council’s Saison Poetry Library. The inaugural KALEID 2012 London is coordinated by Lily Lyor Askénazi and aims to establish an annual European networking event based in London.
