La Especial Norte 3
Hey you guys! La Especial Norte 3 will start hitting the streets today.
In this issue: Drew Daly and I sit down and chat about his art. Debra Baxter continues her article from La Norte 2. Jeffry Mitchell does a great review on Roy McMakin's Purplish show (and supplies a "Venus de Bear" drawing for Deb's piece). Plus lots more! Find a copy and check out the awesome zine that Matthew Offenbacher edits and publishes.
I expect you'll be able to find them at the same places as before: "Howard House (should have copies today), James Harris Gallery, Lawrimore Project, Crawl Space, SOIL, The Hideout, Western Bridge, or at the Henry Art Gallery (over by the lockers)..."
La Especiale Norte has included Dan Webb, Heide Hinrichs, Debra Baxter, Adrian Piper, Matthew Offenbacher, Eli Hansen, Gretchen Bennett, Joseph Park, Robert Smithson, Jeffry Mitchell, Emily Ann Pothast, Jean Tinguely, Susan Robb and myself! Norte 1, Norte 2 and more!
If you haven't had a chance to see what it's all about yet, here's Matt talking about the zine in an interview we did last year.
"It's the first time I've tried to publish something. It's totally inspired by this environment and the artist community here. There are so many smart people and good conversations going on. In studios and bars and coffee shops. I wanted to try to get some of it down on paper. My hope is that the zine can become a place to hone some of these ideas, and then project them back out into the world, to stimulate more conversation between artists, and also help guide the public conversation about the meaning of our art."
