A series of six, monthly events that focus on artists’ writings, readings, discussion and debate. Themes include: artists’ publications, nomadism, cosmopolitanism, the avant-garde, transgression, power.
The events prioritise work that carves out new territories and disrupts established forms. No consensus of practice is aimed for, rather these six events present a range of singular and contesting voices, including: Eileen Daly, Dan Fox, Maria Fusco, Robert Garnett, Stewart Home, Andrew Hunt, Nina Power, Clunie Reid, Lynne Tillman, and Mark Waugh.
