Join us for the opening of Paper Rad: The Zines of Paper Rad, Thursday, October 15, 6-8PM in the Printed Matter project space. The exhibition coincides with the release of PPP –The Zines of Paper Rad, available for the first time from new imprint Delema Books. Editors Paul Bright and Sonja Radovancevic will be in attendance to launch the book at thursday’s opening, which is also a celebration of Printed Matter’s grand opening at 231 Eleventh Ave!
Perhaps best known for their influential website paperrad.org, the three-member, New England collective (Jacob Ciocci, Jessica Ciocci, and Ben Jones) also produced hundreds of handmade books, stencils and posters throughout their ten years working together. The inaugural exhibition by popular artist-trio Paper Rad is curated by Paul Bright.
First shown at the NY Art Book Fair 2015, this updated presentation features a selection of zines, clothing and other printed ephemera created by the group between 1997 and 2009, most of which have not been seen publicly until now. Assembled by Bright over a ten-year period, the collection represents the largest private collection of Paper Rad’s work.
PPP-The Zines of Paper Rad is a 200 page hardcover featuring selections from the collection of Paul Bright. The book includes a forward by Andrew Jeffrey Wright, and an introduction by Bright. Published in an edition of 1,000 copies, with variable cover in red, blue and green, available here!
