Challenging traditional perspectives is at the heart of contemporary art. But it often happens in the margins of notebooks, hidden behind closed doors. In this series, we’ll read key texts for upcoming shows and write on the margins together, using open-access PDFs. Join us for a public, collaborative process of reading, writing, and sharing ideas.
Doing Language : Word Work
Doing Language : Word Work is a multi-part project that upends traditional notions of publishing by highlighting the work of artists whose practices engage with language in various—and often unconventional—ways. Inspired by Toni Morrison’s Nobel Prize Speech, Doing Language : Word Work aims to foreground conversations and publishing processes in collaboration with five artists: agustine zegers, Riley Hooker, Malcolm Peacock, Joselia Hughes, and Bryan Castro. This research seeks a range of formats for language embodiment; formats that may be gestural, intimate, subtle, or immaterial.
