Panel Discussion and Book Launch at Southern Exposure
Southern Exposure and THE THING host a discussion of the history, present tense and future of artists’ publications. Gwen Allen’s new book Artists' Magazines: An Alternative Space for Art (MIT Press), serves as the starting point for the conversation, which surveys American and European artists’ publications from the 1960s to the 1980s. Allen will give a presentation, which will be followed by a discussion of its relationship with a variety of contemporary publishing projects, from art journals to edition projects, and zines. Participants include Courtney Dailey, founding member of project MOBILIVRE-BOOKMOBILE project and the Bookmobile collective; Chris Duncan, founder of Land and Sea; Eleanor Hanson, co-founder of The Present Group; Jeff Khonsary, publisher of Fillip magazine; and will be moderated by Gallerist Steven Wolf.
This event is preceded by a book signing at THE THING offices on October 12.
