There’s a first time for everything. This was my first experience at the Printed Matter LAABF that happened this past weekend at The Geffen. I remembered lots of things in full detail…
Day 1: arrived at The Geffen Contemporary, which everyone was confused with it being at the MOCA down the street… but it wasn’t.
I was overwhelmed at how many people were there that it made me need to go pee.
I couldn’t find the restroom, actually. The anxiety drew in and I wasn’t feeling social enough to ask where the restrooms were. I eventually found it when my friend Fred from Slow Culture told me where it was. There’s no sign that says “restroom” specifically so I figured it was just the art side of it.
From then on, I just got lost wandering around trying to find cool stuff to purchase. Ed & Deanna Templeton had an exhibition of 100 photos and a plethora of their early & now zines showcased.
There were so many art books, photo books, & zines. You would just have to know what you were looking for or get lost. So I didn’t buy anything on the first day, just took some photos. But the next day I already had a mental list of what I wanted & liked.
Thanks for lurking if you scrolled down this far!
