THE THING Issue 7 Wrapping Party and Two Year Anniversary
Issue 7 of THE THING, an experimental publication founded by San Francisco-based visual artists Jonn Herschend and Will Rogan, will launch on Thursday, July 9, 6:00 – 9:00 PM at Southern Exposure. The public is invited to celebrate the launch and to help wrap Jonathan Lethem’s issue.
THE THING is a quarterly periodical in the form of an object. Each year, four artists, writers, musicians or filmmakers are invited to create an everyday object that somehow incorporates text. The object is reproduced and hand wrapped at wrapping parties and then mailed to the homes of the subscribers with the help of the United States Postal Service.
This issue launch will mark THE THING’s 2nd anniversary and a homecoming to Southern Exposure. The public is invited to celebrate and help wrap. Rogan and Herschend began their collaboration of THE THING in May 2007 as part of a residency at Southern Exposure.
