The Papirmasse Relaunch Party will take place at Galerie Maison Kasini on Saturday, November 27th from 3 to 5PM. The 2009 issues will be on view and Kirsten McCrea will be on hand to talk about the project.
Papirmasse is a subscription that delivers an art print to people’s mailbox every month, featuring art on the front and writing on the back. It was founded in 2009 by Montreal-based artist and illustrator Kirsten McCrea. Issues featured artists and writers from across Canada including Mary Pinkoski, Kelly Schykulski, Michael Kuby, Gabe Wong, Emily Testa, Dietrich Rosteck, and Johnny Forever. The format of the art print ranged from a 5” x 7” accordion folded booklet, to a 6” x 9” reversible book folded down from a single huge sheet of paper, to an 18” x 24” double-sided poster.
The next issue of Papirmasse is the January 2011 issue, with a special bonus issue offered to those who subscribe before the new year. A new website allows people to view past issues and subscribe and purchase gift subscriptions. VISIT PAPIRMASSE.COM
