WINDFALL* ISSUE 2 by Various Artists
210 x 210cm, 58 pages, Full colour printed, Perfect bound, Softcover, 2021
As contemporary practitioners within the arts, the unfortunate conditions determined through inadequate gallery representation, financially weakened support-networks and the frequent inability to view exhibitions first-hand become substantial hindrances in the establishment of artistic practice. There is distinct awareness of the absence of representation of emerging practising artists nationwide, outwith the constraints set forth by conventional institutional bias. And it is from these very restrictions that the Windfall* editorial establishes itself. Named to reference the lauded Windfall ’91 project – an artist-led exhibition intended to negate the traditional gallery circuit, and catalyse the already on-going conversations between collaborative peers in Scotland and beyond – this publication seeks to become the banner from which networks between emerging artists can be established, developed and maintained. Windfall* Issue 2 features the work of contemporary artists Zoe Marden, Claire Yspol, Daisy Chetwin and Judit Flora Schuller.
