Gigantic Issue 2: Gigantic America, Release Party, PPOW Gallery

Many warm thanks to everyone who came out last Saturday for the Gigantic Issue 2: Gigantic America Release Party at the PPOW Gallery in Chelsea! Thank you too to all our readers and performers and to PPOW for hosting the night’s events!

The evening featured a performance by Lydia Bell, original work by Sasha Fletcher and Justin Taylor, as well as a series of “surrogate readings” featuring content from the issue: Nina Schloesser reading Ken Sparling, Joshua Cohen reading Joe Wenderoth, Mike Topp reading Brian Beatty, and Kendra Grant Malone reading Deb Olin Unferth. In addition, the gallery hosted the installation of Brooklyn artist David Mahfouda’s 130-foot, handmade American flag, damaged during celebrations after Obama’s election and restored by the Brooklyn-based Fixers Collective.

Thank you to our photographer for the evening, Annabel Braithwaite for Belathée Photography.  For a full slide show of Annabel’s images from the evening please click here. In addition, The Hostess Project has generously posted a slide show on flickr.

Check out Christopher Koulouris of Scallywag & Vagabond’s pithy recap of the evening here. Thanks, Chris! 

It is safe to say, that this lot are onto something and a thorough read of what they have put out certainly had me invigorated and rather charmed [...] With their America issue the editors were intent on discovering what it is to be American, where America lives at this moment and where America is possibly heading.  - Christopher Koulouris, Scallywag & Vagabond

Copies of Gigantic Issue 2: Gigantic America are now available in stores throughout the city, as well as these fine independents across the nation. Subscriptions are also available online here.

Stay tuned to our website for companion content to the new issue!
