Arcana Books Hosts The Launch Of Aint-Bad Magazine Issue 11
September 24, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
On Saturday, September 24th from 6 to 9PM, Arcana: Books on the Arts invites you to meet the Aint–Bad editors and photographers during this unique opportunity to acquire the three hot-off-the-press installments of Metropolis individually or as a set.
Established in 2011 by Carson Sanders, Taylor Curry, Caroline McElhinny, Caitie Moore, and James Jackman, Aint–Bad is a collective dedicated to publishing contemporary photography and text to support a progressive community of artists from around the world through online web features, printed periodicals, monographs, and exhibitions. Their objective is to stimulate the collection of and appreciation for photography by way of accessible and affordable publications. The brand supports local initiatives by working together with artists, curators, and institutions to help foster a creative community.
Issue number 11 of Aint–Bad Magazine is subtitled Metropolis. Presented as a trio of elegant, sixty-four page publications, each is a compelling visual survey of contemporary photography from Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York – the three largest cities in the United States. While it is a challenging task to curate work from cities with such dense histories of art and culture, the contributors to the Los Angeles installment – Anthony Lepore, Jonnie Chambers, Justin Fiset, Sean Lemoine, Shawn Bush, Sinziana Velicescu, and Tim Bradley all depict our local environment in a revealing and engaging fashion.
