Jonn Herschend of The Thing Quarterly

Join us on Thursday, November 9 at 7 p.m. as we talk with interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker Jonn Herschend about his work and his creative life. Ten years ago, Jonn teamed up with fellow artist Will Rogan to co-found and co-edit an experimental publication, THE THING Quarterly. Several "issues" of THE THING Quarterly are currently on view in our current exhibition, Text Me: How We Live in Language, including a shower curtain by Dave Eggers, a window shade by Miranda July, Dinner Napkins by Tucker Nichols, and a poncho by Experimental Jetset.

Jonn will be interviewed by Victoria Camblin, editor and artistic director of ART PAPERS. Want to know more? Here's John talking about his work.

Tickets are $12 for non-members / $8 for educators, seniors, military, and MODA members / $5 for students.

About Jonn Herschend:
Jonn Herschend is the co-founder and co-editor of the experimental publication THE THING Quarterly, which he and fellow artist Will Rogan began as a collaboration ten years ago.  He is an interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker whose work explores fiction, reality, and the narrative structures that we employ as a way to explain the chaos and clutter of our everyday lives. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally including the 2014 Whitney Biennale, the Telluride Film Festival, SFMOMA, and Den Frie Contemporary in Copenhagen.  He is a winner of three Golden Gate Awards from the San Francisco International Film Festival, and has received two Danish Arts Council Grants, the 2014 SFMOMA SECA award and the Fleishacker Eureka Fellowship.
