HELLO HAPTIC. by Cindy Nguyen

papers flurry
ideas hurry
the warmth of freshly pressed thoughts
on eggshell leaves.

a touch of the keys
euphoric release
of fragments laced to prose.

published vulnerability
a flicker of humanity.

MISSION STATEMENT

HAPTIC PRESS was built from the ground-up by Cindy Nguyen. In her words:

“My dream is to build a community of playing, making, and sharing. I do not know what to call this, but for the time being let’s say it’s an experimental playground. Not quite a collective, gallery, or industry, but just a space to “fux wit it.” Come and leave as you please. Make this your own space.” – Cindy Nguyen

Personally, I am proud of Cindy — for having the courage, confidence, and the guts to build HAPTIC. To disregard bullshit ‘classifications’ of art. To create HAPTIC PRESS as the anti-‘ART’ — a lower-case ‘a’ in art — to make art for all, to make art for the people.

To make art that encourages everyone to make art. A non-elitist place; rather, an open democratic playground of creating, sharing, and playing.

HAPTIC EXHIBITION

Ephemeral glance

Wind lingers on sweeping shore

a coy morning dance.


EXHIBITION 1: TO CLASSIFY

Genealogical distribution of the arts and sciences’ by Chrétien Frederic Guillaume Roth from Encyclopédie (1780) by Denis Diderot and Jean le Rond d’Alembert

Our inaugural exhibition plays with the fantasy of classification.
Classification as control, as order, as comfort.


Photo-Cubism by Eric Kim

semi-abstract, low-poly, graphic design, not picasso, not cubism, matisse-esque, not photography, what’s the point? why? Eric Kim needs to stop diverting from street photography. Eric Kim is addicted to drugs.
