Jo curated an animation program, Experimental Animation, for the new Citizen Jane Film Festival taking place in Columbia, MO this weekend, October 16th-18th. She'll be there presenting her program, showing her new animation, participating in some panels and workshops, and will have copies of her book Quietly Sure - Like the Keeper of a Great Secret for sale. She's also showing a new Lilli Carré short (Head Garden) in her program and will have some Nine Ways to Disappear as well. Check it out! A still from Lilli's animation Head Garden... And from Jo's animation Peeks!
Lart (Berliner) & Simon (Evans) have a show happening now in their current hometown Berlin. Under the name "Light Centre" they created, "An array of objects from the artist shared domestic environment, fastidiously recreated in the form of ghost-like black & white replicas, stand arranged as in a display from a post apocalyptic anthropology museum," according to their gallery, Maribel Lopez. This is reason enough to take a European vacation. More info here:http://www.maribellopezgallery.com/html/CurrentExhibition.html
It's San Francisco Zine Fest time this weekend so make sure to take advantage of this awesome free event at Golden Gate Park! You might even win a copy of Nine Ways to Disappear or Quietly Sure in the raffle. And help them cover some of their costs right next door to the store at Amnesia on Saturday night, 9pm, at the Zine Fest benefit show.
The Renegade Craft Fair is hitting town this weekend and it looks to be a good time for all! Our very own Alexa (you may know her from her lovely embroidered buttons and you'll soon be seeing her regularly at the store on Thursdays and Fridays) will be there as Burgundy & Brown at her booth with Small Stump (along the left side of the pavilion). Be sure to say hi to them and our other wonderful vendors who will be there: Big Stone Head, Blissful, Chikabird, Honeylux, Mittenmaker, and Sycamore Street Press. Here are some of the cute new Burgundy & Brown buttons that Alexa will be selling. And not to fret if you can't make it this weekend...
