EVENT 1:  Songs on conceptual art

Join THE THING Quarterly and the Kadist Art Foundation for the San Francisco album release of Songs on Conceptual Art, a project organized by artists Crystal Baxley and Stefan Ransom. The album is comprised of original songs inspired by John Baldessari’s 1972 video, Baldessari Sings LeWitt, and by Sol LeWitt's seminal document, Sentences on Conceptual Art (1969). The event will take place as a one-night concert featuring performances by Sun Foot, Dragging an Ox Through Water, SAFE, Jib Kidder, and Boron, and will feature a limited edition poster for the show, made in collaboration with MacFadden & Thorpe.

EVENT 2:  THE END OF NATHAN LYNCH'S PERFECT CUP Project

Since July of 2012, Bay Area based visual artist, Nathan Lynch has been working with THE THING Quarterly to create the perfect cup for espresso or cappuccino.  Each cup is made by hand (not thrown on a wheel), so the result is earnest and unique. We now have 45 plus cups that have been on display in our office for the past 6 months, and visitors have been filling out surveys in an effort to supply vital information for the perfect cup... and Nathan keeps making them.   Come out and help us celebrate the logical end of the Nathan's project and find the perfect cup for yourself this Saturday night.

  • When:  Saturday Dec. 1
  • Where:  THE THING Quarterly Office (3285 20th Street, SF)
  • What time:  6-10PM
  • What's more:  Nathan's cups are available for purchase.   MORE HERE
