The Third Rail Issue 8 Launch Party
Please join us Saturday night, August 13 for the LA launch and exhibition of Issue 8 of The Third Rail, a special issue composed entirely of black-and-white posters by artists addressing various facets of the political shipwreck.
The event will feature sets by DJs B-Rok and JVu and readings by Nikki Darling and Jibade-Khalil Huffman.
“With this,” writes The Third Rail, “we interrupt our regular programming so as to respond as a publication to the political turmoil of the present moment, USA today, in crisis, only instead of issuing a programmatic statement we decided to invite a plurality of statements by artists who each had a poster or sign to work with.” The posters are free to take home.
Issue 8 features posters by Aaron Anderson & Eric Timothy Carlson, Lise Haller Baggesen, Gina Beavers, Judith Bernstein, A.K. Burns, Dante Carlos, Cameron Keith Gainer, Sam Gould, Albert Herter & Hiro Kone, Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Alfredo Jaar, Chris Kasper, Devin Kenny, Justin Lieberman, Jordan Nassar & Brendan Fowler, Sara Greenberger Rafferty, Peter Rostovsky, Bruce Tapola, Jonathan Thomas, Voider, Christine Wang, and C. Spencer Yeh.
