Each issue of ESOPUS, a magazine which The New York Times has called "a thing of lavish, eccentric beauty," focuses on three artists' projects—one from an established artist and two from emerging artists, developed specially for the magazine. Tod Lippy, who founded the publication in 2003 will discuss some of the publication's trials and triumphs and reflect on his multifaceted role as editor, publisher, and performance space manager.
Tod Lippy is the editor of ESOPUS magazine and president of the Esopus Foundation Ltd., which also runs the alternative exhibition and performance venue Esopus Space. Formerly he was the editor and co-founder of Scenario: The Magazine of Screenwriting Art, the publisher and co-editor of publicsfear magazine, and a senior editor at Print magazine. He is the author of the book Projections 11: New York Film-Makers on Film-Making (Faber & Faber, 2000), and his 1999 short film, Cookies, was featured in over 20 film festivals in the U.S. and abroad.
