Daniel Bourke (WA) and Clare Wohlnick (WA) launched the inaugural issue of Avant-Garden, an irregular journal published by their printing studio Benchpress.

Concerned with representations of nature in contemporary art, Avant-Garden featured new Interviews, essays, articles and projects from ten Australian and international artists. Avant-Garden was displayed in a custom-designed reading room, alongside a lithographic print developed during their residency with Sydney collective Big Fag Press.

Benchpress has produced architectural journal The Weather Ring, a publication for Love Is My Velocity record label, and numerous limited-run artist publications and catalogues.
