Current Issue | Issue 39:1 | March 2019

This issue privileges ideas of local colour as a provocative surface tension, embodying diverse perspectives and materialities. It samples the practices of artists who work with colour and colour values in response to the environment, social life, colour as it comes readymade in a tube, a tin, a colour chart. Reframing or recalibrating the spectrum to more fulsomely embrace multinatural, therapeutic, feminist, queer, Indigenous and other perspectives, it broadly opens up the terms of reference in present-day colour relations.
