Lit: Catalogue for "Territories"

 Detail, in-progress screencap of Territories: a compendium

I cannot adequately express how excited I am about the progression of the last few weeks. Since the fall of 2010 I have been working on curating a group show called Territories, opening April 1st, 2011 at Marwen in the Untitled Gallery. The artwork is coming together marvelously, and I'm so happy with how the exhibition will look once we install everything in a week or so. All of this could have been enough, but for some reason I got a bee in my bonnett a few weeks ago, and I decided I wanted to do a catalogue as well. (!)

With the enthusiastic and invaluable help of my friends, designer Scott Reinhard and Marwen exhibitions coordinator Arielle Bielak, we are almost done pulling together a fantastic catalogue that was conceived, written, designed, and executed over the course of four short weeks. A few other people had a hand in it as well (an understatement) --- the catalogue not only serves as a document of the exhibition, but it is a compendium of texts on the subject of "territories" as well. In just one week, Territories: a compendium grew to over 130 pages, with forty-two contributors sending forty-six submissions from twenty cities all over the world. I am honored, touched, and proud to present the artists and writers who have contributed to this book. This is just a sneak peek at what's to come. Email me at sendmissiveshere [at] gmail [dot] com  if you'd like to pre-order a copy (we're only able to print a limited edition of 40, unless you order one in the next few days!)
