Following last fall season's panel discussion, "Experimental Magazines and the International Avant-Gardes, 1945–1975," this program examines a particular moment in experimental journals and magazines. Focusing on publications established in the 1980s, scholars, artists, and editors address the magazine as a platform for new ideas and original contributions by artists. Participants include Jonathan Crary, Meyer Schapiro Professor of Modern Art and Theory, Columbia University, and founding editor of Zone Books; and Thomas Lawson, Dean of Cal Arts, and Susan Morgan, former editors of REAL LIFE. The program is moderated by May Castleberry, Editor, Library Council Publications, The Museum of Modern Art.

Tickets ($10; members $8; students, seniors, and staff of other museums $5) can be purchased at the lobby information desk, the Film desk, or online via Ticketweb.
