Broadsheet #02 Jorge Rojas
Broadsheet is a single sheet of newspaper-sized paper featuring an individual artist, who is given freedom to determine the topic and contents of the page and support to make it a reality. It is intended to sit in the space between zine-making, artwork, and exhibition space. Broadsheet is curated and designed by Andrew Rease Shaw and produced under the Torpor House imprint.
