FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LTTR: Listen Translate Translate Record
One-night art event and journal release party at Andrew Kreps Gallery
Thursday, August 28, 2003. 7 -10 p.m.
The new journal LTTR is pleased to present a one-night art event in
conjunction with the launch of its
second issue, Listen Translate Translate Record. The event will be held at
Andrew Kreps Gallery on
Thursday, August 28th from 7 -10 p.m.
The event will feature a live body-based piece by performance art pioneer
Nao Bustamante and an
exhibition of works by an international group of emerging artists. Listen
Translate Translate Record (both
the theme of the new journal issue and the title of the exhibition) explores
artists’ new strategies for
examining and challenging existing social and aesthetic systems by
translating, reconfiguring or de-
stabilizing these systems into new cultural and creative possibilities. As
Katherine Crane of the New York
Press writes of the journal, LTTR is a ” curatory project of exploration and
inclusion . . . housing queer
theory, essay, photography, watercolor paintings, ink drawings and small
sculptures. In its insistence upon
transcending the boundaries of the 2-D printed page, LTTR embodies core
qualities of the very
communities it represents.” Similarly, the event at Andrews Kreps Gallery
reflects the aesthetic and critical
aims of the journal, with works by journal artists and other invited
participants in media ranging from drawings
to slide projections and embroidery.
Artists in the exhibition include XYLORJane, Wynn Greenwood (Tracy and the
Plastics), Tae Won Yu,
Sophie Morner, Sarah Shapiro, Nao Bustamante, Math Bass, Leidy Churchman,
Ken Okiishi, Katrin Pesch,
Kate Kunath, Kate Huh, K8 Hardy, Jenny Jones, JD Samson, James Tsang, Hanna
Liden, Ginger
Takahashi, Emily Roysdon, Dusty Lombardo, Cass Bird, Aisha Burnes and Alyssa
Anderson.
The exhibition is curated by Lanka Tattersall. The editors of LTTR are Emily
Roysdon, Ginger Takahashi
and K8 Hardy. Please email lt2122@columbia.edu or ginger@lttr.org for
additional information.
Andrew Kreps Gallery is located at 516 W. 20th St. New York, NY 10011.
