Zhou B Art Center, Chicago - April 16, 2015.

GOSS183 is the Publishing House for PoetsArtists, iARTistas, OCHO, JuJuBes and MiPOesias. Our publications were founded with the idea that publishing in itself is also an art form. We publish works from all mediums including painting, drawing, video, digital, photography, audio, sculpture, internet what-nots and poetry. Our publications are available in digital format as well as print-on-demand. We have yearly group shows in various cities but Chicago is our home town.

We are not afraid of the digital age. We breathe it in and exhale it back to our readers with gusto.
