Esopus 3 will be available in mid-October 2004. Its contents include artists’ projects by Andrea Dezso, Jenny Holzer and Mark Keffer, a pull-out poster of 100 frames from Bruce Conner’s 1966 film Breakaway (along with an appreciation by artist Doug Aitken), portraits of Marcel Duchamp, Franz Kline, Louise Nevelson, Isamu Noguchi and many others by the late photographer Marvin Lazarus (accompanied by Lazarus’s journal entries from the early ’60s recounting each sitting), a new “Dear Sissy” letter-monologue by playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis, Alex Shear’s Object Lesson #3 (a removable poster), Angus Trumble’s “1849 in Retrospect,” and an interview with alternative rock band the Wrens, in which they discuss the making of their acclaimed 2003 album The Meadowlands.

Also featured is a 10-track invitational CD on the theme of “Product Displacement,” for which musicians Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3), Jad Fair (Half Japanese), Scott McCloud (Girls vs. Boys), New York jazz/scat singer Connie MacNamee and The Baptist Generals, among others, have “embedded” advertising jingles or slogans in original songs.

Esopus is published twice a year (in the spring and fall) and incorporates high-quality printing, unusual paper stocks, specially formulated inks and the inclusion of hand-assembled objects to present original artists’ projects, critical writing on all aspects of art, media and commerce, interviews, photography, fiction, and in each issue, a specially commissioned CD. The magazine, dedicated to presenting a noncommercial, unmediated forum in which artists can present their work to the general public, is always ad-free.
