@ Antenna’s Paper Machine, 6330 St. Claude Avenue
Issue 007 of Antenna::Signals drops on January 24, 2018. In celebration of the opening of Antenna’s Paper Machine print center, Signals presentations and performances examine the theme Papers. Papers explores the myriad uses of paper – a medium at once literal and symbolic, fragile and dogmatic, portable and burdensome – to translate and regulate life, love, and legality. The event explores the connotations of the theme from a number of specific angles, including immigration papers, the Green book (guide to safe road tripping for African Americans in Jim Crow America), Storyville blue books (catalogues for New Orleans’ famed red light district), and rolling and hemp papers.
