THE THING Quarterly is very excited to host a launch party for STATE CHANGE, the second publication by our friends at the Living Room Light Exchange (LRLX).
The evening will include readings by Rick Prelinger, Elisabeth Nicula, and Theo Triantafyllidis/Joe Veix, plus a public web chat with artist avatar LaTurbo Avedon and a live 360 degree video performance by Blinkpopshift.
STATE CHANGE features commissions of new works from new media artists, writers, and media theorists in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, a nexus of the technology industry, and from satellite Light Exchanges in New York, Paris, and Tel Aviv. Paricipating artists include Tom Marioni, Kevin Chen, BlinkPopShift, and LaTurbo Avedon, among others - with an introduction by Rick Prelinger.
Publication Two was printed as a limited edition run of 200 books, 140 pages, color, each containing a bookmark of “Fuck Trump” protest stickers by artist Jenny Odell. The launch of this book was made possible by an Alternative Exposure grant from Southern Exposure Gallery in San Francisco, CA, and the Andy Warhol Foundation.
