Headmaster Meets The Dean


Headmaster Meets The Dean on Sunday, October 18th.It will be a very special evening of participatory intrigue and mandatory fun. Contrived by Maxfield Munson, the performance features Headmaster No. 7 contributor J.R. Uretsky along with special guests. This event is unlike anything Headmaster has ever done before. Space for this event is extremely limited, and tickets are available now.

The Dean is offering special room rates for interested audience members. Email us at headmaster@headmastermagazine.com for more info. October is a great month to visit Providence!

Headmaster A to Z


For the next month we’re doing an alphabetical retrospective of all 66 Headmaster contributors on our Instagram, our Twitter, and our Facebook. We’ll be going from A to Z (or more precisely from B to Y) twice a day, starting tonight. Follow along, if you’re not already.







Headmaster AV Club


We’re just three days away from AV Club, a day-long installation curated by Headmaster at The Stable (125 Washington Street) during the Providence International Arts Festival. The program features eight videos which will rotate on six screens in an otherwise normally functioning gay bar. Participating artists include J.R. Uretsky, Matthew Underwood, and Aaron Pexa of Providence; Jaanus Samma of Tallinn; Paul Marcus Rodriguez of Los Angeles, Ivan LOZANO of Chicago, and the Philadelphia duo Kris & Will.

In addition to the video projects, Headmaster will be celebrating the release of its seventh issue with a tea dance that afternoon from 4-7pm. AV Club is part of the Providence International Arts Festival, produced by the City of Providence and FirstWorks. A first-ever signature event for the Creative Capital. The video program is made possible by The Avenue Concept.


Headmaster No 7 Cover


A Floridian fort, an Estonian sauna, and a combination wastewater treatment plant and Japanese garden in Van Nuys, California. What do these places have in common? They’re all featured in Headmaster No. 7! It’s available now. The new issue also features projects inspired by Vancouver’s SkyTrain, the New Bedford Whaling Museum, and a hidden archive of materials relating to gay Trekkies. There’s also medieval art! A cruisy Spanish flea market! And the seventh chapter in the ongoing saga of Headmaster. Order a single copy of Headmaster or save some money and get a two-issue subscription from our web shoppe.



Headmaster at the Philadelphia Art Book Fair


Join us next week for the Philadelphia Art Book Fair, which runs April 24–25 at The Annex on Filbert (830 Filbert Street). We will have the new issue! We’ll also have prints from our Alumni Sale and other exciting goodies. We’re excited to be a part of this show, and to take our own field trip to Scrapple City.

On Saturday the 25th, join us for a little low-key party at The Bike Stop. We’ll get there by 10pm and won’t leave until they make us.


Chris Ironside at the Headmaster Alumni Sale


Spring is here, they tell us, and we couldn’t be more excited. We’re so thrilled, in fact, that we’re celebrating with a brand new print at the Headmaster Web Shoppe. Spring Haze is a photograph by the Toronto-based artist Chris Ironside, whose work you might remember from Headmaster No. 3. Chris also made the George Michael-inspired glitter prints that we introduced (and promptly sold out of) back in January at the LA Art Book Fair. Spring Haze is produced in a signed edition of five, and is available at the Alumni Sale right now.

Headmaster Photo Release at Please Do Not Enter


Headmaster’s first resolution this year is to escape frosty New England, and so we’ll be heading west in two weeks for Printed Matter’s third annual LA Art Book Fair. While we’re there, we’re teaming up with men’s concept store Please Do Not Enter to release two editioned photographs by acclaimed Estonian photographer Jaanus Samma. The photos are part of a project that will appear in Headmaster No. 7, out later this winter. We’re celebrating the photo release with an event at Please Do Not Enter on Saturday, January 31st from 7-10pm. The event is open to the public and features an ambient vocal performance by the intoxicating House Red. Please Do Not Enter is located on the 12th floor of the historic PacMutual Building (523 West 6th) in downtown Los Angeles. The fair takes place at the Geffen Contemporary from January 29th through February 1st. Look for us at table X-64.


Headmaster In Miami Beach


Headmaster is heading south next week for Art Basel Miami Beach. Join the magazine’s editors for a party at Hôtel Gaythering—Miami’s only hetero-friendly hotel—on Friday, December 5th at 10pm. This is a not-to-be-missed event! (That weekend Hôtel Gaythering will also be hosting the Queer Biennial, a visual extravaganza featuring the work of 34 visual and performance artists.)





A Day With(out) Art


For the 25th annual Day With(out) Art on World AIDS Day, Headmaster is pleased to present Alternate Endings, a program of original short videos commissioned by Visual AIDS. The program features seven artists/collectives—Rhys Ernst, Glen Fogel, Lyle Ashton Harris, Derek Jackson, Tom Kalin, My Barbarian, and Julie Tolentino—whose provocative new video work relates to the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic. The program will screen at over 45 locations worldwide. Join Headmaster in Providence for a screening at AS220’s Black Box (95 Empire Street) next Monday, December 1st, at 8pm.
