Phonebook 2007/2008


Cultural Writing. Art. Essays. Because a space heater and good friends can be a million times warmer than central heating and track lighting, PHONEBOOK is an invaluable, yet by no means exhaustive (yet) guide to America’s finest alternative artspaces. These are the galleries you are unlikely to find in your average tourist guide, the ones located in basements, in lofts, off of alleys, in suburban back yards. These are the movies Moviefone won’t tell you about and the lecture series you won’t find among your course guides. These are the places that will remind you why you liked this stuff in the first place.

Phonebook acts as a unified voice, and in doing so not only mirrors the collaborative DIY spirit of alt-spaces but also fulfills a need for greater self-representation. Ultimately Phonebook asserts that culture isn't something to take for granted.
