This “survey of Higgin’s theoretical writings throughout his prolific career” also features facsimile editions of texts, ephemera and a Something Else Press publication checklist that he described as “love letters to the future.” This book and a few selected Something Else Press reprints will be for sale during the exhibition.

The opening reception will be interrupted with brief remarks by curator Brandon Kennedy and performances of selections of from Higgin’s acclaimed Danger Music by actors/artists including August Kennedy, Jesse Morgan Barnett, Kevin Rubén Jacobs, Stephen Lapthisophon, Michael Mazurek and others.

Please join us for an unforgettable evening and exhibition, then buy a book and take it home!
