CORY REYNOLDS | DATE 9/19/2015
Join us Saturday, September 19 for a full schedule of launch events with Jesper Haynes, Erik van der Weijde and Foundations Magazine. All events will take place in the ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 Magazine Store in the museum's Entrance Kiosk!
To pre-order, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
3-4 PM: Jesper Haynes will sign copies of his books, St. Marks 1986-2006, New York Darkroom, Shibuya Scramble and GIG, plus his zine, Haynesville, in the Magazine Store.
Jesper Haynes began documenting his life 41 years ago, at the age of 12. Since arriving in New York City in the early 1980s, he has photographed his life in the East Village, Bangkok, Stockholm and Tokyo and collected the images in these self-published books and zines.
4-5 PM: Erik van der Weijde will sign a range of titles in the Magazine Store while transforming copies of his newest book, Pomerode, into a unique new object with the help of scissors, colored paper and glue—materials that are not usually part his practice.
Since 2003, photographer and book artist Erik van der Weijde has published more than 50 books and zines under his own 4478ZINE imprint or in collaboration with small presses including ROMA, Rollo and Camera Austria. Alongside his launch event in the ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 Magazine Store, an installation of his book covers will be installed in the window of the ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore, looking in to M. Wells Dinette (on the ground floor of the museum). For this NYABF-specific installation, Van der Weijde selected four books on seemingly disparate themes and hung them in an abstract, grid-like pattern so that only their monochromatic, linen-bound covers register visual connections. Relationships between the books' photographic subjects—Third Reich architecture in southern Germany, vernacular table design from around the world, German architecture in Brazil and a boy sleeping in his bed at night—are for the viewer to make intuitively.
8-9 PM: Foundations Magazine launches issue 3, Genre, guest edited by Carly Mark, with a signing by cover star Florine Mark.
Focused on removing genres like “Postinternet” and “New Media,” as well as larger-scale categories of classification relating to gender and social constructs, Foundations 3 features work by Jessi Reaves, Helen Johnson, Guan Xiao, Sara Rabin, Aria McManus, Raine Trainor, Alivia Zivich, Bailey Scieszka, Ayan Farah, Dwyer Kilcollin, Maggie Lee, Jennie Jieun Lee, Sara Powell, Trudy Benson, Raine Trainor, Elaine Sturtevant, Jamian Juliano-Villani, and Katie McCurdy. Additional contributions are by Alexander Shulan, Aryana Hessami, Rebecca Mazzei, Bridget Donahue, Sebastian Gladstone, Santi Vernetti, Keith J. Varadi, Marlene Obermayer, and Lila Seidman.
The ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 Magazine Store (above) is located in the museum Entrance Kiosk at Jackson and 46th Avenues.
