Formats presents the third edition of its monthly series: Formats X!
Each month, Formats invites a creative to select publications related to his or her artistic or research practice. The books, magazines, zines and/or self-published print projects selected by the guest will be exhibited in the store for a month on a display created especially for the occasion.
On January 16th, join us for the unveiling of Formats X The Perfect Nothing Catalog.
The Perfect Nothing Catalog is a collection of objects and ideas from artists, non-artists, healers, clowns, mystics, weirdoes, little kids and nature curated by Frank Traynor. Started in an abandoned shack in Brooklyn, New York, in the spring of 2012, it has since manifested itself through temporary installations at MoMA PS1, under a parachute hung from a tree outside of Art Basel: Miami Beach, at the NY Art Book Fair, and at The Newsstand in a New York subway station. The Perfect Nothing Catalog has been featured in Time Out New York, NYLON, Daily Candy and Sight Unseen, and was one of New York Magazine’s Reasons to Love New York in 2013.
For Formats X The Perfect Nothing Catalog, the project's first international foray, Frank Traynor has curated a selection of texts about post-materialism, post-consumerism, methods of transcending space and time, traditional Japanese flower arrangement and other topics concerning nothingness.
Come have a drink with us and discover his selection, which will be on view until February 12th.
