This zine was exhibited as part of CFPR Book Arts: New Wave: artists’ publishing in the 21st Century, School of Creative arts, University of West England, Bristol, 15th – 19th of September, 2009. The exhibition formed part of a two-year research project which aimed to extend and sustain critical debate of what constitutes an artist’s book in the 21st Century in order to propose an inclusive structure for the academic study, artistic practice and historical appreciation of the artist’s book.
Tweak, tweaked, tweet was later exhibited as part of Space Invaders at the National Gallery of Australia in 2011.
Drawn entirely from the collection of the National Gallery of Australia, the first Australian institution to have collected this type of work, Space invaders surveys the past 10 years of Australian street art. Featuring 150 works by over 40 Australian artists, this exhibition celebrates the energy of street-based creativity and recognises street stencils, posters, paste-ups, zines and stickers as comprising a recent chapter in the development of Australian prints and drawings.
Space invaders looks at artists and their iconic street-based works at the point of their transition from the ephemeral to the collectable and from the street to the gallery.

The exhibition toured to UQ Art Museum, University of Queensland, Brisbane (2011), RMIT Gallery, RMIT University, Melbourne (2011), and Western Plains Cultural Centre, Dubbo, NSW (2011 – 2012).
