First issue of a quarterly publication, co-edited by Sophia Dixon Frydman and Lauren Mackler.
“Each issue takes a different form and a different topic. This is the church issue. Inspired by artist-made print ephemera such as Wallace Berman’s SEMINA, Tom Marioni’s VISIONS, REAL LIFE MAGAZINE, ASPEN, and AVALANCHE, Public Fiction doesn’t aim to document things that have happened, but rather make a new print form for them. A snap shot, ticket stub, paper trail… Public Fiction takes form in print and space. The physical space, a storefront in Highland Park, gives a site to experiment with the topic at hand in real-time.” – from the publishers.
