+ Attending

Special Joint Meeting -

Contemporary Art Magazines Reading Group and #CBIC Collaboration

New Museum

235 Bowery

(Please note that RSVPs are essential. There is no limit on the number of participants but we will not let anyone in past 7:15PM).

The urgent questions of CBIC have aligned directly with the historic demise of one of the paramount journals of arts and politics, the New Republic. At the same time, the type of examination of particular forms of critical writing and publishing that takes place at the Contemporary Art Magazines Reading Group makes for an interesting opportunity for these two discourses to convene on the subject of the maelstrom that is the post-hughes New Republic. Is a magazine an institution? What did Hughes do that so rankled his world class editors? What does it mean to be a digital publication?
