This Thursday night on March 7th, Signal Gallery will be hosting a launch party celebrating the release of the first issue of EMMA Magazine, a new Brooklyn-based artmag by visual artists Emma Rae and Emma Harden. The magazine seeks to promote the work of young, unknown artists and thinkers; the Emmas ran a successful Kickstarter campaign this fall to cover the initial costs of production and the designs for the magazine proposed on that site are elegant and minimal, allowing the featured art to speak for itself. Come by the party to pick up your copy, meet the editors and some of the contributors, jam to music by DJ NBA2K, check out the current installation at Signal of work by Reade Bryan and, of course, drink some cheap beer.

EMMA Magazine Launch Party: Thursday, March 7th, 7pm-Midnight (no cover) @ Signal, 260 Johnson Avenue between Bushwick Avenue and Evergreen st; Montrose stop on the L.
