GALLERY ONE ONE ONE PUBLICATIONS STRATEGY:
Cliff Eyland was the principal contributor to this Gallery One One One website, and, except where otherwise noted, was the writer and developer of the content of the Gallery One One One publications from 1998 to 2010/11.
In the year 2000, with generous support from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Manitoba Arts Council, Gallery One One One examined the aesthetic, technological and ethical issues having to do with copyright, reproduction quality, and distribution of electronic publications in relation to small public gallery programming and collecting. It was reasoned that as long as the large, glossy, off-set printed and bound publication remains the sine qua non of public gallery publishing, the intellectual discourse about contemporary art will suffer, because high publication expenses can force distribution limits and intellectual compromise on a publication's content. Environmental considerations were also a factor in our decision to go electronic. The gallery began to make CD exhibition catalogues in the year 2000, becoming perhaps the first public gallery to commit itself so fully to its website and electronic documentation. Gallery One One One's website was the centre of its publications strategy, but the Gallery also continued to distribute exhibition brochures, print-outs from electronic files, and other kinds of publications as need and funding arose.
