Montez Press takes over the space at Mathew—a gallery in NYC—for the third summer in a row. This year Montez will present a month of radio. For 30 days, 24 hours a day, content will be streaming live from Chinatown, bringing together artists / writers / DJs / musicians / critics / theorists to explore the medium of radio.
Radio and publishing have much in common; radio is a seemingly obsolete and limited method of communication, yet, much like publishing, it continues to persist despite the ubiquity of image based technology. This month long installation will encapsulate our specific moment in art, music, and media while also showcasing the work of historical and contemporary artists and organizations that inspire and inform Montez Press.
