It’s All A Blur, the current exhibition at SOMArts, is coming to a close. This Friday we are having the closing reception for the show and simultaneously releasing the exhibition catalog. Edited by SOMArts curator and gallery director Justin Hoover, it features writing by Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Dale Hoyt , Amelia Jones, Niki Korth and Sandip Roy. All the design work for this project was done by award-winning designer (aka my husband) Dan McKinley , who was recently recognized in Print Magazine’s 2010 Regional Design Annual, and many of the photographs of the installations were shot by Hewitt Photography (aka our wedding photographer), who gave us lots of generous in-kind support that made this possible.
The book is 128 pages, and in keeping with the theme it blurs the lines between a document of the exhibition and a stand-alone curated literary exploration. The retail price is $25 and can be purchased here via EventBrite or anytime from the SOMArts gallery. This is a limited edition print of 500 copies.
The line up for the book release party and closing night promises to be exciting including readings by Dale Hoyt and Niki Korth, live video deejaying from David Lawrence and music by DJ Tom Thump.
Please come to the SOMArts Main Gallery this Friday from 6:00-9:00 pm with readings from 7:00-8:00. The event is free and has a cash bar. Here is a link to the facebook event page.
