When I survey the issues Artlink has published over the years, I’m struck by the way they pose questions, leave gaps for the reader, invite a sense that there’s much more to be said, imaged, discussed and dreamed. They remain pertinent, ahead of their time.

While the printed magazines of the 21st century are beset by all kinds of challenges, the evidence is that writers remain curious, courageous and committed to chasing ideas across the page. Compiled from an open, country-wide call-out and introducing new writers alongside well-versed specialists, our writers reflect on influences, ambitions and hopes for contemporary art writing (and reading) in its myriad forms. Art / Write / Read is a textured moment in time, drawing on art historical traditions and local archives, imaginative visual analysis, curatorial conundrums and creative and alternative modes of criticism.
Artlink acknowledges the law, customs and culture of Kaurna People, the traditional owners of Tarndanyangga Adelaide, and extends this respect to all First Nations peoples.
