In mid-December Triple Canopy will be in residence at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson, where it will host a number of public programs: a screening of films by Robert Breer; a discussion of the role of design in the development of emerging forms of publication; and a conversation between artist and Triple Canopy contributing editor Adam Helms and artist Taylor Baldwin.

Thursday, December 16: 3-7:30 p.m.
Triple Canopy will hold open office hours from 3:00 till 6:00, discussing the work of the magazine with museum visitors and presenting work from issue 11, which we'll be assembling while in residence. At 6:00 we'll hold Print & Demand #3, the third in an ongoing series of conversations exploring how print culture is being changed by the manifold forms of online publication, and how public spaces are being constituted around those forms. The event will be open to the public and will feature Triple Canopy Web developers Adam Florin and Seth Erickson discussing their work.

Friday, December 17: 7-8:30 p.m.
At 7:00, we'll present a screening of the work of legendary animator and filmmaker (and Tucson denizen) Robert Breer. Triple Canopy senior editor William Smith will introduce the program and, afterward, will be joined in conversation with MOCA Tucson director Anne-Marie Russell.

Saturday, December 18: 6-10 p.m.
From 6:00 till 10:00, MOCA Tucson and Triple Canopy will co-present the museum's annual winter solstice party. Admission to the party, which will include drinks, food, and music, is $10 for museum members (who are invited to a special reception at 6:00) and $20 for non-members (for whom the party begins at 7:00). As part of the members-only reception, Triple Canopy contributing editor Adam Helms and artist Taylor Baldwin, both of whom were included in MOCA's inaugural show last year, will discuss their work and their shared interest in contemporary iconography. Triple Canopy will also present a video program and Matt Mullican's "Planetarium," a navigable scale model of the solar system published in issue 10.
