1630 AM KCHUNG Listen Live
Join hosts Ben White and Mathew Timmons Sunday April 21 at 3 p.m. on 1630AM if you're in or around Chinatown Los Angeles or listen live on their webstream. The People will include guests Katie Herzog & Andrew Choate in conversation about their recent books on Insert Blanc Press. 

Katie Herzog: Object-Oriented Programming is a catalog of Herzog's recent exhibition at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC, a Xerox Company) and includes essays by Amelia Acker and Andrew Choate in a large format, full color, hardbound edition of 116 pages. Including over 50 plates and 30 installation shots, Katie Herzog: Object-Oriented Programming collects Herzog's work from over the past decade or more in what was a single large scale exhibition from January 13. 2012 - March 30, 2012 and what now is an artist's book published very proudly by Insert Blanc Press in the Insert Blanc Monograph series. 
Besides writing an essay for Herzog's monograph, Andrew Choate's book Stingray Clapping, also from Insert Blanc Press, has been called "a lithe chapbook that guides the reader toward a space that precedes understanding through convention, toward the transmutation of facts at the level of the utterance" by Nancy Fumero in her review of the book for the Rumpus. Houston Donham, in his review at HTMLGIANT claims that, "At a time when so much poetry is almost singularly concerned with justifying itself, Stingray Clapping represents an attractive, empowering, and refreshing new alternative." 
We look forward to the conversation and hope you do too! We've put some things below by the artists for you to look at and listen to.
