On Saturday November 18 at 7pm, as part of the Chicago Art Book Fair, we invite you to a joint release of two projects by Trunk Show and No Coast Editions. Doors open at 6:30 pm. This event is free and in tandem with the Chicago Art Book Fair.
From 2013-2016, Trunk Show—a medium beat-up forest green 1999 Ford Taurus driven by Raven Falquez Munsell and Jesse Malmed—hosted three dozen exhibitions of commissioned artist bumper stickers. With the help of essayists Dana Bassett and Anthony Stepter, conversants Dan Miller and Davielle Lakind, designer Aaron Walker and testimonials by a caravan of anonymous and/or famous friends, the project is finding its way into book form. @trunkshowtogo
No Coast Editions presents its latest release of affordable artists’ multiples, this time featuring Danny Giles, Angela Fegan and No Coast/CABF co-founder Aay Preston-Myint. Together the three artists, with widely varying practices, present works that exhibit certain commonalities under the surface. Through print and sculpture, the artists each investigate how the replication and circulation of an image, particularly an image that serves to make one’s politics visible – functions in our cultural climate: what one of Fegan’s text-based works describes as “the echo chamber of false narratives.”
