Summer Issues Cooperative at Greene Exhibitions
East of Borneo presents SUMMER ISSUES COOPERATIVE, a two-week exhibition in the form of a FREE pop-up newsstand at Greene Exhibitions in Culver City. The generosity-based event will distribute current and archival art magazines contributed by over 20 nonprofit publishers from Los Angeles, New York, London, and Vancouver, all of which will be made available to take home free of charge. Visitors are also encouraged to bring in their own magazines to trade or donate, creating an exhibition will expand and contract each day as publications are removed the newsstand and others are placed back into circulation. Participating publishers include: 2nd Cannons, Afterall, Black Clock, BOMB, The Brooklyn Rail, Cabinet, Concord, East of Borneo, Esopus, Fillip,Insert Blanc Press, Los Angeles Review of Books, Material, Native Strategies, Night Papers, Nka, Paper Monument, Pep Talk, Public Fiction, Siglio Press, Triple Canopy, X-TRA, with others TBA.
The event will culminate on Saturday, July 13 with a BBQ + Wikipedia Edit-a-thon focused on “unforgetting” Los Angeles artists and unrepresented aspects of the city’s cultural history. From noon – 6 pm, we’ll be collectively creating and editing relevant pages on Wikipedia.
