A new exhibiton at the Pratt Institute Library celebrates M/E/A/N/I/N/G magazine’s brilliant 30-year run!

Pratt’s exhibition of M/E/A/N/I/N/G (1986-2016) includes all the original issues along with photos, artwork, books, and ephemera from the 30-year run of the magazine.  M/E/A/N/I/N/G is a collaboration between Susan Bee and Mira Schor, both painters with interests in writing and politics, and a community of over 150 artists, art critics, historians, theorists, and poets. M/E/A/N/I/N/G  gave a voice to otherwise unrepresented perspectives on art making and aesthetics, motherhood and art, racism, feminism, resistance, collaboration, privacy, trauma, and artists-as-activists.

Opening Tuesday, February 6, from 6 to 8 PM
Dialogue with Mira Schor and Susan Bee moderated by Martha Wilson: Tuesday, March 6, 6-8pm, at Pratt Library
ON VIEW February 1-April 6, 2018
