We've Got the Numbers by SPE Editions, Pre-orders Available

Location: New York City, USA
The exhibition We’ve got the Numbers  was scheduled to open March 19, 2020. The work was being installed,  posters were printed, performers were rehearsing and then New York City  went into lockdown. The show was cancelled and postponed until ....  nobody knew. Instead of waiting for some as-yet-unknown future date to  re-book the show, we found another way.
 
Songs for Presidents is very pleased to announce that we are  producing a hand-printed, 30 page full color book of the work, and screening the new performance piece from Dirty Churches. We are making this book because we want to get this work out there. A book will have a  longer life than an exhibition, possibly reach more people, and is  affordable and accessible to all. It was important to restage the performance in the gallery, as physical spaces have energy of their own.  
The future of the Songs for Presidents basement, which carries a history with the late Genesis P Orridge, is uncertain. Dirty Churches rose to the occasion, and inhabited the space with the creation of Rumples.
Hand printed in collaboration with PrintCache in Detroit, you can order the book here. Books are printing in November and ship in December. The pre-order edition includes the 24” x 30” poster from the exhibition and a 5” x 7” still from the Dirty Churches performance video.
The Risograph is a duplicator manufactured by Riso Kagaku Corporation in Japan. Risographs are a direct descendent of the mimeograph,
though they are often referred to as an intersection of screen printing, photocopying, and offset printing. For this book, each plate is printed in 4-5 unique colors on Domtar paper.
