pilot press… OPEN MIC, Jen Kennedy and Liz Linden
July 21, 2015

The pilot press… OPEN MIC is an art/text publish-a-thon. For the open mic, all artists and art writers who would like to participate are invited to bring a piece of their work (for example an artist’s book, art text, criticism, manifesto, poems, fiction, memoir) to present to the audience. All those bringing something to present should RSPV to in advance; the program will be determined on a first come/first served email RSVP basis, with each participant given 5 minutes to present.

Pilot press… is a D.I.Y. feminist publishing house that provides a non-hierarchical, unedited, and uncensored look at the self-identified feminist community. Visitors are encouraged to print and bind as many copies of their work as they like; in exchange for this free publication service, they are required to leave a single bound copy of their publications in the pilot press… library. Throughout 2015, pilot press… will be installed and open to the public at Abrons Arts Center as part of their collaboration with PARMER. During this time pilot press… will publish small editions of original material for reading groups, events and exhibitions at the center, building visibility and community at the center through the focused lens of the feminist publishing house.
