super excited to announce my next event happening on thursday 11/12/15! please see details below and i'll go into a lil more background on how it came about here: i first met visual artist jason andrew turner last april at my new york's finest pop-up through our mutual friend felipe (tipi thieves) and later had the opportunity to interview jason for my small talk series this past summer. jason recently moved here from philly and i freakin love his work. i immediately knew i wanted to work with him on his first show here in new york. we spent months emailing and visiting all kinds of stores around new york and brooklyn. then a few weeks ago, lower east side shop la petite mort hit us up and said they had a last minute opening for a two month pop-up! we were beyond excited. for the opening, lpm owners oj and kara also wanted to bring in their friend elizabeth who's launching a new art + fashion magazine, mind breath magazine. and thus was the birth of on paper, an event celebrating jason's two month long art pop-up and a launch party for mind breath magazine.
