In lieu of my article this week, I’d like to invite the MDW community to the Still Developing Polaroid Party + Book Release. in 2009, I participated in a gallery show marking the expiration date of the Polaroid 600 film.
If you are in the Santa Monica area, please come out and support!
Polaroid Party + Book Release
In its original incarnation, Instant Gratification was a celebratory tribute to instant film. The opening at Hibbleton Gallery was set to coincide with the expiration date of Polaroid’s beloved 600 series; a last hurrah on August 7, 2009. Instead, word spread. The exhibition drew an audience of over 800 enthusiasts on opening night in Fullerton, and a crowd of over 2,000 for the Los Angeles vernissage at Bergamot Station, Copro Gallery on January 9, 2010.
Now coupled with a limited edition book – which features over 200 professional and amateur photographers from around the world as well as 30 essayists touting the medium’s invaluable assets – Instant Gratification’s cause continues to expand.
Please join us in celebration of Still Developing: A Story of Instant Gratification’s release at Deyermond Art + Books, an independent bookstore and gallery specializing in rare literature, art monographs, photography, architecture and design books.
