I have edited a digital magazine that assembles a selection of writing by students on the MA Contemporary Arts Practice and MA Fine Art at University of Plymouth. The texts were made in response to prompts and discussion in a series of seminars over the past year. Bringing these texts together in a magazine format puts them into conversation with each other. The publication offers a sense of the importance of writing on these MA courses, and the diversity of writing around and within contemporary art practice. You can read the publication here.
On Thursday 30th June at 1000hrs, I will facilitate an online panel discussion with four artist-writers (Emma Bolland, Sara Bowler, J. R. Carpenter, Josie Cockram) considering art, writing and their overlaps and intersections. The panelists will each present a short provocation and further discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience. The event will be online on zoom.

I have written a response to one of the 27 objects that will be on show at 310 New Cross Road, London as part of the project ‘Things’ organised by Tamara Projects. The objects will also be listed for auction on eBay along with the texts written in response by a range of writers and artists. The auctions will go live from 00.00hrs on October 12th 2018, and remain up for the standard 10-day auction period.
THINGS – Exhibition & Auction
I have an article just out in the first volume of a new sculpture-focused magazine, Sculptorvox. The title of this first volume is Geometry of Nothing. The article ‘A Curiosity of Nothings: on the Not-there-ness of Andrew Kearney’s Sculptural Installations’ discusses Andrew Kearney‘s sculptural works, with a particular concentration on his installation at the Irish Cultural Centre, Paris in 2017:
Andrew Kearney, ‘Mechanism’, Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris; 20 April to 18 June 2017.
The magazine is available from Sculptorvox.
