Talk with Public Fiction about The LOST Issue

LOST (in LA) was the beginning of a series of associated programs, both presented at Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery and Public Fiction, an alternative space in Highland Park.

On January 18, 2013 at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Lauren Mackler, founder of the LA-based art journal and gallery Public Fiction, discussed the process of creating The Lost Issue, a non-traditional exhibition catalog for LOST (in LA). The conversation addressed the history of artist-run publications as well as the research and curatorial process that goes into creating a journal that is more about “ephemera” than documentation. Through a dynamic visual presentation, The Lost Issue came to life as both performance and lecture.
