Invitation to be a potential contributor for "Finer Pleasures." Thanks for visiting.
FP will be an online magazine and is being built around ideas of individual locality. In other words, content and experiences that are in some sense local, immediate, and personal. From jump, we're simply looking for unique and thoughtful, perhaps stylish content. This might range from things artistic, obscure, political and beyond.
Background: This project is a delayed offshoot to the work I did at Black Ball Projects, an artist-run gallery I founded in 2015 with two partners, located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Since departing the gallery, I have been slowly plotting a return to a kind of work that is more expansive and communal versus the often-times secluded nature of day to to day studio art-making. Due to said studio art-making, a project like the gallery, and now FP, is more of a part-time endeavor but a labor of love nonetheless where collaborations with interesting ideas and people rule the school.
I'm not looking for precise pitches yet (we're pretty far from launch), but if you fancy yourself a writer photographer, poet, journalist, philosopher, animator, culture snob, adventurer, critic, radical...or more simply, if you are a genuinely curious/analytical/thoughtful person who's not afraid to grind away at something for the sake of discovering what's "good," then I'd love to hear from you.
