THE THING 5th Birthday and Issue 18 Wrapping Party

October 3, 2012
5:00 - 9:00 pm

Southern Exposure is very excited to host THE THING's 5th Anniversary party and Mike Mills Issue 18 Wrapping Party. THE THING began at SoEx in 2007 as part of Free Enterprise, a summer residency program providing three artists and groups with an opportunity to create and launch the framework for a creative business. 

THE THING is a quarterly periodical in the form of an object. Each year, four artists, writers, musicians or filmmakers are invited to create an everyday object that somehow incorporates text. The object is reproduced and hand wrapped at wrapping parties and then mailed to the homes of the subscribers with the help of the United States Postal Service. 
Issue 18 of THE THING by Mike Mills will launch on Wednesday, October 3, from 5 - 9 pm at Southern Exposure. This issue launch will mark THE THING’s 5th anniversary and a homecoming to Southern Exposure. The public is invited to celebrate the launch and to help wrap the issue while enjoying food, drink, music and give-away birthday presents!
