Teleplay, Part 1 by Catharine Maloney - Launch with performance by Teen Men
December 11, 2015
For the past five years Catharine Maloney has combined and recorded her interest in men, outer space, and play in her photographic series Teleplay, Part I. The result is a spiral bound 62 page book from Skinnerboox Books (Italy). The book is filled with playful men, bright-makeshift costumes, and backdrops. Her photographs are helter-skelter constructions, manipulated by hand or crudely on the computer, in order to create a strange place.
Please come help her celebrate the book with a party and special audio/video performance by Teen Men.
For every copy of the book sold, Catharine will take a Polaroid of the purchaser in a turtle neck from her collection – Like her book, the evening will be filled with off the cuff entertainment and fun.
