Little thesis featured in “Newsstand” @ pinkcomma gallery

Little thesis @ pinkcomma

Celebrate pinkcomma gallery’s relocation to 46 Waltham Street at our inaugural opening in the new studio. The event, “Newsstand,” will present a collection of architecture and design-related broadsheets, newsprints, and ephemera.

Please join us on November 19, 2010, 6:30 – 9:30 pm
NEW LOCATION: 46 WALTHAM STREET, COURTYARD 1

“Newsstand” is the third in a series of exhibitions on contemporary architectural publishing. Following on “A Few Zines” (related to design zines and magazines) and “Publishing Practices” (on the influence of architecture books), “Newsstand” examines another print medium: the newspaper. Inexpensive printing, rapid dissemination, and expanded dimensions make the newspaper a topical platform for architecture and design discourse—even in an increasingly digital world. In order to investigate the motivations behind this tendency, the exhibit presents imaginative examples of the genre from the past several years.
