New Observations magazine
Issue 129 OUT OF THE BOX – The Way of Art On The Loose
Guest Edited by Joshua Selman

New Observations Press

New Observations is a conceptual print magazine published by artists for artists and the greater community, as a work of collaborative art. After 128 back issues from 1981-2001 we are ready to print issue #129, twelve years later, as a limited edition. We need your help to do that.

We have put together a remarkable issue with Guest Editor, Joshua Selman. The offset printing of our 129th Issue, “OUT OF THE BOX – The Way of Art On The Loose,” reintroduces the magazine exploring alternative ways that artists have interacted with art making and their communities, bringing together seminal artists from Fluxus, Street Art, Correspondence Art, Contemporary Intermedia, Experimental Utopias and beyond. We are presenting artists who have reacted to social conditions that lack flexibility, by distributing work either for free, or outside of rational transaction, loosening the exchange structures in their communities, through various offerings.

We have inside coverage of Lance Fung’s Artlantic Wonder, the five year Art Park being created in Atlantic City and how the first phase, with installations by Robert Barry, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, John Roloff and Kiki Smith survived hurricane Sandy to open to the community, in just a month of its aftermath. Alison Knowles created a piece for the issue titled “Out of the Box,” that was also performed on SWITCH TV in Holyoke, MA and documented for the magazine. Hannah Higgins has contributed a meditation on Buckminster Fuller. We have a feature section from very rare, never before seen documentation from the Larry Miller Archive that is being guest designed by Sara Seagull. We are also very happy with our New Logo by guest designer, Betsy Brecht.

And there is much, much more, promising an exciting and important re-launch.


Robert Barry, Mark Bloch, Christoph Cox, Buckminster Fuller, Lance Fung, General Idea, GLOVE, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Erika Knerr, Alison Knowles, Layman Lee, Larry Miller and Sara Seagull, Hannah Higgins, Jessica Higgins, Gaia, Lucio Pozzi, John Roloff, David Shapiro, Kiki Smith, Alex Stern, Sarah Sze, Lucja Wasko-Mandes, Ryszard Wasko and others…
Our Target is $8,000.00. Our priorities for funding are Printing & Distribution Costs. We are printing 64 Full Color Pages with TigerPress of Western Mass!

Come to the re-launch event in NYC! The community is invited to celebrate the achievement. As soon as we have the printed edition look for your personal invitation.

With Gratitude,

Erika Knerr
Publisher and Designer
