x2016.09 PASTELEGRAM NO.6 / WOMEN.ON.THE.EDGE.OF.TIME

A PRESS RELEASE: 

Pastelegram no. 6 is about to arrive. Titled "Women on the Edge of Time," it is co-edited by Los Angeles-based artist Megan Whitmarsh. It collages voices from the past, present and future through fiction, essays, images, interviews and worksheets. It is in two parts: 

1. A thirty-page newsletter with contributions from Amanda Ackerman, Susun Weed, Trinie Dalton, Leah Modigliani, Amy Sedaris, Marisa Williamson and others.

2. A fabric version of the newsletter, which distills the contents of the printed multiple. It encourages readers to gather together, slow down and magnify reading through an interactive communal experience. The conversations that occur through the magazine’s text can expand to move between readers. Austin is its first stop, before moving to shows in Tel Aviv, Los Angeles, and other locations TBA. 

 

You are invited to celebrate with us the creation of Megan Whitmarsh's "Women on the Edge of Time" with three events in Austin on September's third weekend. The artist will be present.

Saturday, 9/24, 1-4pm | Feminist T-shirt Workshop led by Megan Whitmarsh @ Permanent.Collection

Use appliqué, embroidery and iron-on to make your own t-shirt re-contextualizing feminist messages from past and present with the aim of projecting them into the future. Claim your chest's/breasts' political space to send forth YOUR own message. Bring your own idea or use one from woman-positive history. Examples below.

Please register in advance by emailing ariel@pastelegram.org; Permanent.Collection's address will be sent to you in reply.
