Off the Shelf is an evening of live-events staged by the Word and Image Forum at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL.

Taking as its theme a re-examination of the Small Press Collection of rare magazines housed at UCL, this event offers the chance to engage with the spirit of the alternative 'avant-garde' press, re-visiting early texts that straddle the divide between art and poetry - including artists and writers Vito Acconci, Sol Le Witt, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Derek Jarman and Bob Cobbing. These texts will be explored through various forms of performance and accompanied by film, video and documentation of the period. The evening also stages new creative works by contemporary visual artists, writers and musicians, and students, and a 'speaker's corner' with short talks by members of the Slade Word/Image Research Forum. This is one of a series of public events planned by the forum for 2009-2011. The Slade OFF THE SHELF is the grateful recipient of a Beacon Bursary administered via the department of Public Engagement, UCL.

For the event, Kreider + O'Leary screened 'Epilogue': a short film related to the final part of the tripartite film work Gorchakov's Wish.
