Box #1, 61/200

In conjunction with the exhibition “Vision in a Cornfield” , MOCAD presents the premiere issue of BOX #1, an homage to a short-lived quarterly by the same name produced in the late 1970s. BOX is published in a limited edition of 200 for which 150 are for sale. Each box contains at least 30 works by local and national artists, musicians and writers whose work has a relationship to the themes present in the exhibition.

The Box includes a 12” vinyl LP of unreleased works by Sun ra and Aaron Ibn Pori Pitts, a 16 track CD of other unreleased tracks along with a reprint of Toward a ‘Ratio’nal Aesthetic, a deep and dense music manifesto with Sun Ra-like equations called ”Faruquisms” by Faruq Z. Bey, who revised and worked on the book just shortly before his death.

Each Box has a unique cover designed by Afro-futurist musician and artist Efe Bes, each box is signed and numbered by the artist.
