JOIN THE CONVERSATION
fine print hosts a combination of long-form pieces alongside a frequent schedule of short-form reviews and responses to exhibitions, individual artworks and artists' practices. fine print is a space for a broad cohort of voices and varied approaches in writing, each with a key aim: to highlight the importance that documenting art holds to the vitality of its creation.
If you would like to contribute, say hello and make a pitch or request our writer's brief.
The theories and histories of art are often compartmentalised in an effort to define and understand their importance. In reality they form a network of colliding ideas and ideologies, splintering and changing course as artists negotiate with the situations of past, present and future. Where are these meeting points, in theory, concept and practice?
Issue 15: MATERIAL
Expanding notions of meaning, emotion and intention; the validity of material thinking remains at the fore of artistic expression. Artists consider a range of ideas whilst looking at the ways in which materials obstruct, disrupt or coalesce and amalgamate within binary formations. Focusing on rethinking subjectivity and the hierarchy of objects this issue will delve into matter, orientations, agency, fundamentalism and our relationships to things.
fine print acknowledges the traditional country of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains. We recognise and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and honour their continued cultural and spiritual connection to the land on which we meet and work.
Thank you for joining in.
