DICK HIGGINS’ SOMETHING ELSE PRESS

“There are few art-world figures as influential—and as little known—as Dick Higgins (1938-1998), co-founder of Fluxus, poet, scholar, theorist, composer, performer, and publisher of the Something Else Press.

“In 1965 he restored the term ‘intermedia’ to the English language, giving it new dimension to recognize the dissolution of boundaries, the expansion of liminal spaces between traditional modes of art making, and the open field for new forms that cannot be compartmentalized.

“Higgins’ own contributions to intermedia are many—as a participant and instigator of Happenings, as writer and composer straddling traditional and vanguard forms, among others—but it was the Something Else Press (1963–1974) that redefined how ‘the book’ could inhabit that energized, in-between space.”*

This week, join curator and historian Alice Centamore, Higgins editor and Granary Books publisher Steve Clay, publisher Lisa Pearson, and Christian Xatrec for a celebration of Higgins and the publication of Intermedia, Fluxus and the Something Else Press—Selected Writings of Dick Higgins, edited by Clay and Fluxus artist Ken Friedman.

INTERMEDIA, FLUXUS, AND THE SOMETHING ELSE PRESS*
