PAJ has published its 100th issue! PAJ 100 features several generations of artists, curators, critics, and presenters responding to the main themes of the issue: Belief, Being Contemporary, Performance and Science, and Writing and Performance. The issue also includes conversations with artists on working downtown, curating performance, and theater/art crossovers. Six artists contribute portfolios of their drawings.

To celebrate PAJ 100 there will be two public events. On two evenings several contributors to PAJ 100 will present their response on important themes in the issue at the SoHo gallery, Location One (26 Greene St., NYC). All programs are Free and Open to the Public.
