Gigantic #1 contributor (and Gigantic magazine website designer) Joanna Neborsky will be showing her beautiful thesis work, based on Félix Fénéon’s Novels in Three Lines, over the next two weeks at the Visual Arts Gallery. More info here.
Joanna’s exhibit was written about on the New York Review of Books blog, which includes a little shoutout to Gigantic at the bottom.
You should drop by if you can, it is sure to be stunning.
