Aiming to not only facilitate discussions but cultivate an ongoing critical dialogue between artists + writers + audience, we have invited a select few talented arts writers to contribute towards the project. In the coming months, written works addressing nominated exhibitions will be published on our digital archive alongside visual documentation of the art, performances and happenings that take place here.
We think this is a chance for participants to collaborate on something really interesting and constructive and to potentially engage new audiences with the work of artists and writers. We are encouraging those involved in the program to be open to discussion (meeting/email/telephone/studio visits/coffee) with the artists about their practice and exhibition so that the essay, interview, review or piece of creative writing not only reflects their intentions with the work but develops a greater consideration by those who encounter it because of the writer’s active participation.
