Human Resources welcomes you to celebrate the release of a unique and dynamic independent publishing endeavor. For the fifth consecutive year, Darin Klein & Friends present the collaborative 'zine project Box of Books. An all-new selection of artists and friends has learned to make their very own simple booklet using a single piece of paper and a specific folding technique. The outcome is an edition of 100 boxes, all containing each of the participants’ work - a diverse and exciting mix of images and texts, and a broad range of styles and concepts.
Box of Books, Vol. V showcases the work of Brandon Andrew, Sadie Barnette, Ryan Brewer & AA Bronson, Deric Carner, Ray Cha, Joshua Chaney, Brian Gainey, JIMMY the zine, Daniel Ingroff, Jonesy, Karen Kevorkian, Tommy Kovac, Molly Larkey, Perla Yasmeen Melendéz, Narcissister, Paul Pescador, Steven Reigns, Jimena Sarno, Matt Wardell, and Suzanne Wright
At this one-night only launch party and reception, the public is invited to peruse the contents of the box, which is available to purchase for $20.00 per box. Also in store for the evening are the accompanying Exhibition and Poetry Reading and Short Film Screening featuring Box of Books, Vol. V participants.
Exhibition: Brandon Andrew, Sadie Barnette, Brian Gainey, Daniel Ingroff, Karen Kevorkian, Molly Larkey, Narcissister, Paul Pescador, Jimena Sarno, Matt Wardell, and Suzanne Wright

Film Screening: Selected pieces by LA’s very own Jonesy - including a sizzling world premiere of a brand new work!
Human Resources is a team of creative individuals which seeks to broaden engagement with contemporary and conceptual art, with an emphasis on performative and underexposed modes of expression. Human Resources is entirely volunteer run and seeks to foster widespread public appreciation of the performative arts by encouraging maximum community access. Human Resources also serves as a point of convergence for diverse and disparate art communities to engage in conversation and idea-sharing promoting the sustainability of non-traditional art forms.
About the organizer: With an ever-expanding network of friends, Darin Klein curates exhibitions and organizes arts programming, simultaneously producing, collecting and promoting artists' publications and independent media.
