A multi-media exhibition to celebrate the first ten years of the independent publisher Trolley Books.
Since they were founded in 2001 by Gigi Giannuzzi, Trolley Books has been highly regarded as a maverick independent publisher of photography, reportage, contemporary art and recently, literature. To celebrate the first ten years of award-winning publishing Trolley Books now presents TROLLEYOLOGY—a multi-media exhibition at Londonewcastle Project Space on Redchurch Street, Shoreditch, the original home of Trolley. The exhibition, running over two weekends, will also contain previously unseen material from the making of the books, including personal images, contact sheets and photographers' recollections, documenting the unique stories from each book and the importance of this small but potent publishing house. It will pave the way for the new book publication later in the Spring TROLLEYOLOGY.
The exhibition brings together Trolley photographers such as Nan Goldin, Alex Majoli, Stanley Greene, Paolo Pellegrin, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Tom Stoddart, Nina Berman, Thomas Dworzak, Alixandra Fazzina, Robin Maddock, and Jamie Morgan. It also includes contributions from wider members of the Trolley family such as the artists Paul Fryer, Sarah Lucas, Polly Morgan, Mat Collishaw, Le Gun and writers Sean O Hagan, Julian Stallabrass and cultural historian Barry Miles.
