June 26–July 13, 2013
East of Borneo presents SUMMER ISSUES COOPERATIVE, a two-week exhibition in the form of a 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. The exhibition and related events are curated by Stacey Allan and Gladys-Katherina Hernando, with exhibition design by Lauren Kima Graycar.
Participating publishers include: Afterall, BOMB, Cabinet, Concord, East of Borneo, Esopus, Fillip, Insert Blanc Press, Los Angeles Review of Books, Material, Native Strategies, Night Papers, Paper Monument, Pep Talk, Public Fiction, Triple Canopy, X-TRA, and others to be confirmed.
The event will culminate on Saturday, July 13 with a BBQ and Wikipedia Editathon focused on building a presence for Los Angeles art and art history online. More information here.
East of Borneo is an online magazine published by the California Institute of the Arts.
Greene Exhibitions is located at 2654 La Cienega Avenue in Los Angeles. Gallery Hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 11 am – 6 pm.
