Screen Shot 2021-06-25 at 3.49.24 PM

Each year, 18th Street Arts Center produces a full color printed annual catalogue that invites writers, scholars, and artists to create new scholarship around our commissioned projects and programs. Organized along yearly themes, these beautifully designed books are a fascinating window into the work of international artists that come through 18th Street Arts Center to create new work, do research, and investigate new possibilities. 

Below we have digitized the last several years of our printed catalogues, and will continue to add to this page over time.

If you are interested in buying a printed copy for $20 each, please contact admin18@18thstreet.org.
