Art / Write / Read

Issue 42:1 | Parnati–Kudlila / Autumn–Winter 2022

Editor: Una Rey

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.
