Back in December I met with Iker Gil, the mastermind behind MAS Context (There's a new one out now!). We drank super-fueled Intelligentsia cortados at the Monadnock and cooked up a plan to bring A Few Zines to Chicago. Fast forward to spring, and the show opens at UIC's School of Architecture on April 5 and closes with a top notch panel on April 9.
The closing-night panel, Publishing Futures, includes:
Brendan Crain, The Where Blog
Penelope Dean, University of Illinois, Chicago, Flat Out
Iker Gil, UIC, University of Illinois, Chicago, MAS Context
Marc Fischer, Temporary Services
Jimenez Lai, University of Illinois, Chicago, Bureau
Publishing Futures: Content, Context, and Emerging Formats With e-book, tablet, and social media technologies rapidly reshaping the publishing landscape, how new and old formats respond? Publishing Futures observes the changes facing art, architecture, and design publishing—blogs, journals, zines, and magazines—and speculates on future models.
Closing Panel April 9, 2010
Panel Discussion: 6:00 – 7:30 pm
Reception: 8:00 pm ‘til late.
