LIMITED TIME ONLY (LTO) presents MAD-LIB [rary] at Independent Curators International (ICI), in partnership with The Feminist Press

New York, NY – On Tuesday, July 24th, 2012, from 7pm to 9pm, the creative collaborative and production team LIMITED TIME ONLY (Legacy Russell, Stina Puotinen, and Sarah Giovanniello) invite you to join an exciting new "choose-your-own-adventure" hosted as part of the Curatorial Hub at Independent Curators International in TribeCa.

The MAD-LIB[rary] will be an opportunity for the public to participate in true Mad Lib fashion in a zany, surreal, Dada-inspired, and perhaps nonsensical assemblage extravaganza. MAD-LIB[rary] invites artists and writers—an explosive combination of luminaries and rising stars—to contribute limited edition material of their choice.

The event will provide attendees from the realms of the art and literary worlds alike an opportunity to curate their own magazine or booklet content, and B-Y-O-creative-vision. Paying homage to the histories of literature, art, book-art, found art, flea markets, and book fairs, MAD-LIB[rary] provides an alternative from the glossy, pre-packaged culture of mass media. 

MAD-LIB[rary] is all at once a living archive, a museum, a magazine, a madness—on July 24th, get crazy with us!

FEATURING EDITIONS BY niv Acosta, Braulio Amado, Mónica de la Torre, Diane Exavier, Sarah Gentile, Kara Hearn, Scott Hug, Maria Lokke, Mollie McKinley, Rachel Milano, J. Morrison, Clifford Owens, Annie Powers, John Reed, Jen Schwarting, Heather Warren-Crow, and Grant Worth.

This event is free and open to the public though space is limited.

LIMITED TIME ONLY  (LTO) is a creative collaboration and curatorial production team.

“Limited Time” speaks to the time we allow ourselves to think (and play) outside the banalities of the day-to-day, and “Only”—well, that means it’s made just for you. LTO will encompass the sometimes sporadic and spontaneous nature of the events we make for you to enjoy.
