A portfolio surgery run by Zara Wood and a Cartoons and Comics weekend are also new this year.
In three years Pick Me Up has established itself as a one-stop destination to find some of the most innovative graphic works in the industry.
There has been a healthy weighting in favor of emergent artists but also a notable presence from the graphics establishment, with Rob Ryan and Anthony Burrill taking residencies in previous years.
This year Peepshow Collective will take an onsite studio residency to present The Museum of Objects of Origins which promises drawings, objects, prints and costumes ‘from an invented past’.
There are two galleries in residence, Nelly Duff which represents Ben Eine and The Toaster, will bring a focus on traditional printing methods, while Beach London, which represents Sister Arrow and Carl Partridge will show framed work and small press artists’ zines presented in a vintage library setting.
The exhibition, Pick Me Up Selects has an exclusive ‘new talent’ bent, selected by a panel including Camilla Parsons, founder of the Outline Editions gallery, and Angharad Lewis former editor of Graphik Magazine.
Artists included, and published here, include Niki Pilkington, Riikka Sorumunen, Paul X Johnson and Yuko Michishita.
Pick me Up runs from 22 March-1 April, at Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R. Admission is £8.
