Book Launch @ Ooga Booga Chinatown
Feb 4 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Please join us this Sunday afternoon for the joint book launch of:

n_on::s-e.ns/ic-al;; publication’s latest issue: (truth)
&
PRACTICE artist collective’s first publication: PRACTICE x Wind

Celebrating five years of n_on::s-e.ns/ic-al;; art journal, their latest issue (truth) features contributions by David Bell, Akina Cox, Christian Cummings & Lee Lorenzo, Geirþrúður Finnbogadóttir Hjörvar, Jamie Green, Steinunn Gunnlaugsdóttir, Haukur Már Helgason, Lucky Dragons, Christina Catherine Martinez, Miller Robinson.

Lucky Dragons will be performing “Score for a Group of Two” at the launch!

PRACTICE x Wind is the first publication to record all the activities that unfolded around PRACTICEcollective’s artist-run space from 2015 to 2017. It is mainly composed of informal images of artists who have passed through the space, where leisure and work, direction and chaos have become indistinguishable. A separate catalogue includes documentation of all the exhibitions that took place at PRACTICE. More than just an archival document, the book conceives itself as a rhizomatic propagation of the unruly yet generative energy that has earned PRACTICE its unique place. It also marks the turning point for PRACTICE’s transition into the unknown.
