The four-month stint was also marked by several events, like a Sugar Rush ArtMix party, in which aerialists Rebel Rose and Katie Nicole, The Darling Clementines, and others performed alongside the collected works. Hi-Fructose co-founders Annie Owens-Seifert and Attaboy shared their experiences starting and maintaining the magazine and helping in the making of the exhibit in a conversation at the space in July. And you can see a video with Crocker assistant curator Christie Hajela talking about the exhibit below.

Two weeks ago, Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose opened to a colorful audience at the Virginia MOCA. Reviewed here on our blog and in our upcoming issue Volume 40 (now available for pre-order!), this landmark retrospective highlights the visionaries that have appeared in the magazine for the past forty issues, three books, and thousands of pages. Today, we bring you a video recap, courtesy of our friends Kyle Maier and Amie Gibson at Kamio Media.
After a grand opening at Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, "Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose" now travels to Akron Art Museum in Akron, Ohio, where it will open on Feb. 10. The exhibit, hosted in the Karl and Bertl Arnstein Galleries, features 51 contemporary artists from across the world, all featured sometime during the first decade of Hi-Fructose Magazine’s existence. The media is as diverse as the home cities and varying careers of the artists: painting, ceramics, installation art, sculpture, and more are present. “Turn the Page” runs through May 7.
In October 2015, Hi-Fructose Vol. 29 featured artist Olek visited the Virginia MOCA for a special workshop with community members and to plan a large-scale public artwork on site that will raise awareness about the waters near Virginia Beach. Over the weekend, the New York-based artist's project was unveiled at the opening of Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose - a larger than life future New York Times article covering the facade of the museum entrance. Olek's mural, crocheted in a photo-realistic style, imagines our Earth Day headline news in 2020.
