On Wednesday February 4th, Trish Kelly will speak about the exhibition Aspen Magazine: 1965 - 1971 at the Charles H. Scott Gallery.
"Kelly is an Associate Professor of Critical + Cultural Studies and Assistant Dean of the Faculty of Culture + Community at Emily Carr. She has published numerous articles in Art Journal, American Art and the Sixties: A Journal of History, Politics, and Culture, on a range of topics including Minimal Art, art and politics in Chicago in the 1960's, US print culture of the early 19th century, and mapping strategies in contemporary art. Currently she is working on a book project titled On-Site: Art, Politics, and Viewers (New York, circa 1970), which explores the possibilities of critical engagement initiated through new models of exhibition and display."

San Francisco, USA: The Thing Quarterly, 2010
412 pp., 6.5 x 9", ota binding
Edition size unknown
The twenty-fifth issue of The Thing Quarterly (who have previously published works by Martin Creed, John Baldessari, Miranda July, Tauba Auerbach, Ryan Gander, James Franco, Tucker Nicols and others) was announced today.
Brian Roettinger is an LA-based artist and graphic designer who gained notoriety for his music packaging and album covers, most notably with bands: No Age, Liars, and Beach House. Issue #25
serves as a kind of catalogue raisonné, documenting the majority of Roettinger's design work produced to date. However, rather than a traditional monograph, the works here are reproduced as photocopies, presented without regard to chronology and in various states of completion. Sometimes a work is illustrated by an early sketch or rough draft, or a printers proof.
It is available from the publishers, here, for $60.00 US.
