Local Colour

Issue 39:1 | March 2019

This issue takes on ideas of local colour as an embodied medium and a provocative surface tension that fields our interactions with the world. It samples the diverse ways that artists work with colour and colour values as aesthetic, material and cultural propositions that reframe the spectrum to expand on new vocabularies, consider the environmental impacts, rethink social and art-historical exclusions through feminist, queer and survivalist aesthetics.
