Things we like: the innovative Portland-based press Publication Studio; musical genius Phil Elverum, of Mount Eerie and Microphones; and Eyebeam, the acclaimed art space in New York City. If only, we have long wondered, if there was a way to combine these things.
Cue news of Publication Studio’s week-long residency at Eyebeam’s storefront. Quoth the announcement:
The exhibition, REBIND, presents 42 iconic paperback books, each rebound into a unique and original cover designed and created by 42 artists and produced by Publication Studio.
One of these artists is none other than Elverum; the other 41 are equally noteworthy.
The opening reception’s tomorrow; Publication Studio’s residency runs for a week.
