In addition to these FREE events is the Contemporary Artists Books Conference which costs a whooping $100 for the two days of panel discussions and lectures, and $20 for each separate event.  Of interest to ArtMag is the session titled: Zines: Institutional Collecting, Zine Makers, and the Fine Line of Art at 2pm on Saturday October 3rd.

***I will be participating in Jennifer Sullivan‘s Fall Collection fashion show.  The fashion show is a launch party for issue one of her new magazine Threads, which she co-edits with the artist Jenn Brehm.  “Fall Collection [is] a street-style inspired runway show featuring an eclectic collection of NYC based artists and designers modeling their own personal styles and wearable art creations.  Sullivan will MC as models work the runway, along with musical accompaniment and attitudinal inspiration provided by DJ Andrew Steinmetz.”  Jenn Brehm will be on hand selling this awesome new art & fashion magazine. (the fashion show starts at 5pm on the first floor of PS1, not 6pm as I had posted previously)
