From June 29 through July 13, East of Borneo—the online magazine of contemporary art in Los Angeles published by the CalArts School of Art—presents Summer Issues Cooperative, a pop-up newsstand in Culver City’s Greene Exhibitions. The exhibition’s opening reception is on June 29 at 6 pm.

The two-week exhibition will distribute current and archival magazines from more than 20 nonprofit publishers from Los Angeles, New York, London and Vancouver. Participating magazines, zines and publications include Afterall, Black Clock, BOMB, The Brooklyn Rail, Cabinet, Concord, Esopus, Fillip, Insert Blanc Press, Los Angeles Review of Books, Material, Native Strategies, Paper Monument, Public Fiction, Triple Canopy and X-TRA. Visitors are encouraged to take the magazines home free of charge, and even more importantly, to bring in magazines of their own to trade or to donate. The exhibit expands and contracts based on the circulation of the magazines.

The event culminates in a BBQ and “Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon” on July 13. The Edit-A-Thon focuses on “unforgetting” Los Angeles artists and the unrepresented aspects of the city’s cultural history. East of Borneo has been collecting suggestions about who and what to “unforget” via Twitter using the hashtag #UnforgettingLA. Current suggestions include School of Art faculty Charles Gaines, Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art and Light Bulb magazine.
