#129: OUT OF THE BOX
Calling all kindred spirits…
Please support the first new issue of New Observations in 10 years.
With strong resolve, it is my pleasure to relaunch New Observations, the historic editorial laboratory of art, with guest editors Joshua Selman and Lance Fung, titled “Out Of The Box,” in the first half of 2012. The 1st new issue (#129) will be an extraordinary, oxygenating leap within the Magazine’s 30 year lifespan. I have great faith in Joshua and Lance who I have known for decades. Their unique ways of navigating through a commercial art world inspire me. Our vision for the 2012 lineup inspires each of us and will inspire YOU, our readers. Together, we will examine, through a list of world famous artists, newcomers and those you’ve never heard of, ways that artists fearlessly offer their authenticity.
This revival draws on a rich history of artists self-organizing, initiating systems of collaboration and emerging operations that form within voids of opportunity. Our editorial program supports freedom, and resistance to frameworks that are easily defined. We are excited to experiment with the fun and panic of renewing an artist-run journal born of the pugnacious and provoking spirit of the early 1980s in Downtown New York City. Combining the interdependence of avant-garde art in life, with activism, communication and media brings about a diverse engagement in our world. For this dialogue, Artists need a think tank that is alternative to the cube. Join us and support our print and production costs for 2012. Your gift will be tax deductible. New Observations is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization.
