August 7, 2009 is the projected date of expiration for the Polaroid 600 Series. In celebration, and mourning, Fullerton’s Hibbleton Gallery in association with ISM: a community project will host Instant Gratification: a polaroid party. The exhibition will collect professional and amateur works of Polaroid print, culminating in the release of a retrospective book – which will also serve as love letter to the form. Submissions for the book close on August 30, and the publication will emerge in 2010.
