NEWSPAPER VOL V NO 1

23x33.75” Black and White Newsprint| 48 pages

Suggested Retail Price: $20

 

NEWSPAPER collects the work of 21 living queer artists and anonymous photographers. Our first issue is a cross-generational interaction between older and younger artists focusing on a particular queer sensibility. Over its 48 pages of large-scale black and white images, there are students, established artists, found vernacular, and amateurs. The publication is intended to function as an alternative exhibition space in print with shows promoting a certain reformation of queer imagery.

NEWSPAPER was started in 1969 by Steve Lawrence with Peter Hujar, and it ran for nine issues until 1971. It was a small press publication that spotlighted artwork by figures of the Downtown New York scene. Pivotal for its time, NEWSPAPER was a product of the early conceptual art movement and the emphasis on the publication as an art object and a form of information technology.

It is the only real no-word picture newspaper.
