Sixteen 15″ x 22.75″ pages (8 color, 8 b/w)
$5
Published Dec. 22, 2012

“The new oversized print-only issue of Arthur Magazine is even more gorgeous and satisfying than expected. Like a Sunday supplement for heads.” — Jesse Jarnow, author of Big Day Coming: Yo La Tengo and the Rise of Indie Rock

“Beautiful” — Chris Richards, The Washington Post

“A coffee-table newspaper, printed on 16 immense pages of newsprint with minimal ads, and almost every inch covered with words or pictures… The cover, a gigantic piece by surreal comics artist Rick Veitch, is gorgeous, and the crispness and clarity of the print is perhaps the best I’ve seen in a newspaper. Everything in the new [issue] is worth absorbing… Opening the mammoth pages of the new Arthur feels much like unfolding a road map, one that points to strange, unfamiliar worlds.” — Ned Lannamann, The Portland Mercury

“The Haydukes of music/art/culture journalism return…welcome back!” — Team Love Records

After a four-year sabbatical, occasionally beloved revolutionary sweetheart Arthur returns to print, renewed, refreshed, reinvigorated and in a bold new format: pages as tall and wide as a daily newspaper on compostable newsprint, with ads only on the back cover(s). Amazing!

In partnership with Portland, Oregon’s Floating World Comics, Arthur’s gang of idiots, know-it-alls and village explainers are back, edited by ol’ fool Jay Babcock and art directed by Yasmin Khan.

This issue’s contents include…

SATURDAY: Blood Transfusion for a Ghost– Frank Haines at Kenneth Anger Exhibit at PS1

fh020_1_low

Saturday, June 20, 2009, 7 – 11 pm
PS1/MoMA
In celebration of the summer solstice, Frank Haines has organized an evening of ritualistic, mysterious, and mystical performances, music, film, and spoken word. Four performers—the trio Blanko & Noiry; 16mm filmmaker Rose Kallal and curator Mark Beasley; psychedelic metal band Miracle of Birth; and poet Cedar Sigo— will perform in a different corner of a single gallery. ARP (DFA/Smalltown Supersound) will provide musical transitions between each performance.
In a reference to his artistic relationship to the cult filmmaker Kenneth Anger, Haines borrowed this event’s title from Hugh Kenner’s novel The Pound Era, in which the author notes that Pound “came to think of translation as a model for the poetic act: blood brought to ghosts…essentially creating new life from old texts.” Anger’s current P.S.1 exhibition will be on view throughout the evening.
Ticket information here.

Haines, who currently has a show at the Lisa Cooley Gallery, is a visual, musical, and performance artist. His performances are rare and reportedly not to be missed, filling the entire space with energy in a manner consistent with the occult rituals, such as the gnostic mass, that link Haines with Anger. The performance is $10 and 21+, but it sounds like there will probably be free Grolsch!

"Form is the Graveyard of Conciousness" – Frank Haines opening at Lisa Cooley

fh-poster-2009-low
Occultist artist Frank Haines debuts an installation of new paintings, sculptures, and situations tonight at the Lisa Cooley, located at 54 Orchard Street in Chinatown. Most of tonight’s work was made in the gallery space, utilizing a wide range of formlessness and abstraction. With heavy Theosophical influence, the exhibition invokes themes of duality, including one energetic sculpture of two two-tone dangling equilateral triangles. Also well known for his experimental music as one half of the duo Blanko and Noiry, Haines is offering attendees of tonight’s show first crack at a cassette tape limited to 500 of never-before heard music he created while studying in Austria.

If Haines’ style reminds you of Kenneth Anger, you’re not alone. Haines will present a new performance entitled Blood Transfusion for a Ghost at the Anger exhibition at PS1 June 20th.

The show runs from tonight to July 3rd. More of Haines’ art is featured here and here.
