Announcing the new issue of X-TRA

X-TRA, Los Angeles / USA

November 30, 2011

We are happy to announce the new issue of X-TRA!

This issue features a special insert—a reproduction of Harold Gregor’s 1966 project, Everyman’s Infinite Art.

Everyman’s Infinite Art contained thirteen works that were meant to minimize the functions of the gallery, artist, and critic while challenging the prevailing assumptions of what works of art entailed. The gallery, in fact, was closed for he two weeks that the exhibition took place, thus making its catalog with its written descriptions of the art the art itself. In this issue of X-TRA, we present a reprint of the catalog along with an interview with Gregor and an essay by Lane Relyea. Learn more about the project.

Subscribe now and get the next four issues AND the special Artist Project.

The rest of the issue is stellar: highlights include a feature on Virginia Dwan, the final installment of our reprints of Eugenia Butler’s Kitchen Table Project, and reviews of Walead Beshty and Werner Herzog.

Here’s the full table of contents:
