Much like Sometimes Always Perhaps Never documents the materials, processes and ephemera that
have contributed to Newkirks’ art practice, so too will this festive event celebrating the launch of
this publication. Newkirk will personally choose a unique piece of ephemera brought from his archives,
to place inside each purchased Standard Edition book at the point of signing.
In addition, Newkirk has created a group of text based works assembled from mostly 1980’s and 90’s
cassette tapes mined from the remnants of his archive. These works will be raffled off throughout
the evening and are made exclusively for the book launch at Art Catalogues.
The Sighted See the Surface
Dorit Cypis will present her ongoing research in esthetics, ethics and engagement.
Through a lecture, performance and viewing of text based work, The Sighed See the Surface
focuses on Cypis’ current explorations with the Braille Institute.
Congratulations to Salomon Huerta who is now represented by Christopher Grimes Gallery.

25 Alternative L.A. Art Spaces to Check Out Now

LM Projects: Print ain’t dead
As a writer, I have a special fondness for LM Projects, whose constellation of projects places equal emphasis on publications, editioned artworks and art exhibitions. Located in a historic business building downtown, LM Projects has been run by Lorraine Molina since 2009. In summer 2011, I saw an excellent dual slide presentation by artists Kim Schoen and Cody Trepte, exploring the connections between their two practices, which deal in different ways with science, language and uncertainty. This summer, LM Projects is launching a limited-edition artist book by Kori Newkirk, in which he explores his own creative process, showing, in Molina’s words, “the space that is unseen to the public and very private to the artist.”
Congratulations to Cody Trepte!
For his inclusion in the first Los Angeles biennial, Made in L.A. June 2 – September 2.
His work will be featured at the Hammer Museum.
Bound and Exhibited

Common wisdom has it that the book is an endangered species, but the proliferation of and market for high-end artist books — special, often unique or limited-edition visual art in book form — is more robust than ever. Distinct from an exhibition catalog or even a monographic survey, artist books typically combine images, texts and original works for certain price points, but are conceived as self-contained works of art in themselves. For renowned L.A. painter Salomón Huerta, Let Everything Else Burn is such a work, and he is finally ready to present and sign it this afternoon in the REDCAT lounge.
