announcement for Issue 4 release/block party

Come Out! Dress Out! LTTR #4 is Out! LTTR has been working at Printed Matter all summer, and the block party and release of LTTR #4 are the final culminating events of their residency. In the participatory and community-minded spirit of all of their projects, they have invited artists to take over the block, queering the street for a two-hour public celebration. Under the banner "a wave of new rage thinking," artists will roll on the street, erect strategic human pyramids and enact eccentric architecture. With bar stools and loose cigarettes they will draw participants into brainstorming sessions. Bring your camera and prepare to perform in carnival cutouts! There will be four DJs making music, and copies of LTTR #4 - hot off the press - will be available to see and to order. Participating artists at the block party include Ei Arakawa, Nancy Brooks Brody, Leidy Churchman, Daisy Spurs, Discoteca Flaming Star, DJ Designer Imposter, Edie Fake, Allison Farrow, K8 Hardy, Emily Roysdon, A.L. Steiner, and Elaine Van Hoorn.
LTTR #4 was published through Printed Matter's Emerging Artist Publication Series. The annual queer feminist art journal was started by artists K8Hardy, Emily Roysdon, and Ginger Brooks Takahashi in New York in 2001. In 2005, Lanka Tattersall and Ulrike Müller joined as editors. LTTR #4 is available through Printed Matter's web site, www.printedmatter.org
