The Paris Launch of the inaugural issue of the art journal MAY

21 June 2009, 5 pm

This year, June is the month of MAY. On June 21 at 5pm, castillo/corrales celebrates May 1. Although it sounds like a typical pun à la Joe Scanlan, this is not a side event of his exhibition “Red Flags” currently on view at c/c. No, what we’re talking about is the inaugural issue of the new Paris-based art journal called May.

It’s a baptism party with no guest list, no church service and no white cake with white frosting, but season drinks served by the editors and some of the contributors of this first issue, on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Paris. We hope you can join us on this occasion to celebrate this bright initiative, and get a grasp of how this first issue was built piecemeal, and what it could mean as an editorial, or what May stands for and is aiming at.

May #1 presents texts and contributions by artists and critics, including Fulvia Carnevale, Catherine Chevalier, Jay Chung, Grand Openings, Karl Holmqvist, Michael Krebber, Anne Marquez, Jean Pierre Rehm, Clément Rodzielski, Vincent Romagny, Benjamin Thorel, Oscar Tuazon, Antek Walczak, and more…

May #1, 176 pages, Texts in English and French. 6 Euros. Distribution: Les presses du réel.
