San Francisco State Art History professor Gwen Allen will be signing copies of her new book Artists' Magazines: An Alternative Space for Art. This fascinating book explores the role of magazines as an important new site of artistic practice in the 1960s and 1970s, functioning as an alternative exhibition space for the dematerialized practices of conceptual art. In Artists' Magazines, Gwen Allen looks at the most important of these magazines in their heyday and compiles a comprehensive, illustrated directory of hundreds of others.
This event is followed by a Panel Discussion and Book Launch at Southern Exposure on Thursday, October 13, 2011 from 7 - 9 pm.
