The Moholy Ground Project, Inc. is proud to present the official launch of Moholy Ground Magazine, a journal of photography that creates unique opportunities for artists from the San Francisco Bay Area to gain exposure, experience, and present significant new work in a stunning print format. Issue 1 of Moholy Ground Magazine hit the stands in May of 2010 and features the work of Gabriel Wheeler, Leo Docuyanan, Amal Mongia, and John Coyne.

Issue 2 of Moholy Ground Magazine is about to be unleashed and the magazine is celebrating with a 10-day exhibit and two parties at Root Division. Work from photographers featured in issue 2 (including Trevor Traynor, Unnikrishnan Raveendranathan, Josie Ramondetta, Scott Walker, Scott MacDonald, and Richard H. Hart) will be on display as well as work by Gabriel Wheeler, Leo Docuyanan, and more.

The exhibit runs from January 27th through February 5th and kicks off with an opening reception on Saturday, January 29th, featuring DJs Boom Bostic (BAM), Droogs, and Mike Bee (KUSF / Amoeba Music), a video collage installation by Gabriel Wheeler, and tarot card readings by James Haas. Don’t miss the Moholy Ground Photo Booth Orgy manned by staff photographers.

The closing party on February 5th is an event not to be missed, full of burlesque, music, variety acts, a repeat appearance of the Photo Booth Orgy, and more video collage work from Gabriel Wheeler. Mistress of Ceremonies Odessa Lil will present a bevy of burlesque beauties and vaudeville shenanigans with The Indra, sAssy HotBuns, Josie Starre, Lily LaRouge, Bootsy LaRue, Red Velvet, Lezzie McFaggerson, Darky and the Round Guy, and McPuzo and Trotsky. Plus, special guest band Nero Nava! Cut a rug with DJs Boom Bostic (BAM) and Count Fink (The Flakes).

Admission to both the opening reception and closing party is on a sliding scale of $5 to $20. Issues of Moholy Ground Magazine will be available for purchase.
