Established in Toronto in 2008, Steel Bananas is a not-for-profit artist collective and boutique press. We publish broadsides, artist books, poetry and fiction in print, along with zines in various media. Our members individually and collaboratively produce objects, installations, and happenings in various cities in North America and Europe, often in conjunction with SB publications. We currently operate in Toronto (Canada) and Leeds (United Kingdom) with previous stints in Vancouver, Edmonton, and Fredericton, Canada.
We aim to provide a playful forum for contemporary art, letters, and criticism while remaining in flux, meeting new artists, starting new collaborations, and making friends. We strive for openness, access, and dialogue in all of our work.
