Through nine seasons Manifest Press produced 74 full-color catalogs documenting the works selected for every exhibit presented in our galleries. Starting with season 10 (fall of 2013) we shifted to the design of one much larger high quality hard-cover publication documenting each entire season of exhibits, artists, and works shown. The Manifest Exhibition Annual continues Manifest's commitment to long-term documentation and dissemination of our projects, and the expansion of physical exhibits into a broader geography and time frame, while also bringing all exhibits together under one cover each year to create a better product which will be more valuable to the public, teachers, libraries, and exhibiting artists. The book is much larger in size than our already robust INDA, INPA, and INPHA publications, and is designed, printed, and distributed with the same quality and attention to detail. The MEA does not replace those media specific exhibits-in-print, rather it complements them, and we think rounds out Manifest Press's publication suite nicely.
This commitment represented a dramatic undertaking for our small nonprofit staff. We have faced many unexpected challenges and positive changes since establishing the plan for the MEA. Once production of the retrospective books is up to speed each publication will be designed and printed within the first half of the following season, and expected to ship by the following summer. (Manifest's exhibit season runs September to September each year.
