ART WORK ISSUE 2 by Various Artists
A4, 108 pages, full colour printing, perfect bound, 2021
ISSUE TWO features a series of critical essays, auto-fictions, conversations and visual material from cultural workers. We approached art as labour in its processual nature, inviting the writing to emerge out of our conversations. The work which came together explores exhibitions that happened and some that did not; familial ties and unties forming sisterhoods and auntiehoods; protests and memory; soil and gayness; sound and landscape. Contributors include: Abbas Zahedi – Alia Shawkat – Caspar Heinemann – Himali Singh Soin – Jamila Prowse – Jasleen Kaur – Jemma Desai – Legacy Russell – Myriam Boulos – Onyeka Igwe – Priya Jay – Rehana Zaman – Reman Sadani – Rene Matić – Rhea Dillon – Shamiran Istifan – Shenece Oretha Established in 2019 by Róisín Tapponi, ART WORK Magazine is a critical art publication and site of critical inquiry for cultural workers. We explore the potential for a collaboratively-led art community outside institutional frameworks. We prioritise slowness, care, and access.
