Mad Gleam Press is a traditional small press publisher based in New York City and Paris, which publishes various genres of literary and visual art, including poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art books.
The founding members of Mad Gleam Press are the American poets/performance artists Craig Kite and Brian Sheffield and the French visual/graphic design artists Claire Durand-Gasselin and Margaux Taleux.
Mad Gleam Press was created to demonstrate the constant dialogue that exists between the visual, literary, and performance arts through the working collaborations of its editors and contributors. With the participation of hundreds of artists in NYC, Paris and internationally, we curate high quality print publications and live showcases which conjoin the powers of text, image, speech and physical movement in visual/poetic pieces, performances, dialogues on arts and ideas, and excerpts of artist books. We also want to celebrate, document and foster the physical communities that come together around small press publications in our respective cities and help connect them. We hope to offer a space for visual, literary and performance artists, in and outside of the art institutions, to compliment each other’s work and to make new connections across mediums, genres, cultures and demographics.
