FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
An afternoon celebrating the launch of HEJ: a print-curatorial project
Sunday, November 11, 2012, 4:00 – 5:00 PM
Artbook @ MoMA/PS1 Magazine Store, 22-25 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101
HEJ: a print-curatorial project is proud to release its first issue, a publication featuring interdisciplinary work by an international group of 25 artists, writers, and curators. Rigorously curated yet accessible in form and content, HEJ is a tangible space for creative and critical production—in a variety of genres—to overlap, interact, and create meaningful discourse. HEJ balances theoretical and aesthetic concerns, while considering, in print format, the rapid changes in artistic dialogue within the context of the Internet.
In celebration of its first issue, contributors to and friends of HEJ will present their works, continuing conversations started within the issue. Please join us on Sunday, November 11 at 4:00 PM for readings by Jameson Fitzpatrick and Sabrina Reich-Kabos and a discussion between artist Faith Holland and Alex Tatusian, BF Bifocals founder and designer of HEJ no. 1, on working across media in the digital age.
Contributors to HEJ no. 1 are Alex Tatusian, Anna Topuriya, Annalise Hagen, Beryl Bevilacque, Charlie Tatum, Dana Kopel, David Berridge, Elise Largesse, Fiona Williams, Gregory Kaplowitz, Hyunjee Nicole Kim, Jameson Fitzpatrick, Javier R. Casado, Jeff Pash, Julie Panton, Julius Nielsen, Kamila Musilova, Kelsey Kline, Kurt Yalcin, Majla Zeneli, Marie Irmgard, Pedro Ramos, Pier-Yves LaRouche, Raffaele Monti, and Sabrina Reich-Kabos.
HEJ no. 1 is curated by Charlie Tatum and Dana Kopel.
Copies will be available for purchase at the event.
