Holding it Together: Art Magazines, Then and Now
Artist Pages, Policies and Criticism
Panel discussion with Jennifer Higgie, Jason Farago and Jo Melvin (Reader in Fine Art Theory at Chelsea College of Arts), convened by Antony Hudek and Alex Sainsbury
Saturday 25 April, 3-5pm
Jennifer Higgie (writer and co-editor of Frieze) and Jason Farago (writer and founding editor of the new art magazine Even) join Jo Melvin (curator of Five Issues of Studio International, Raven Row) to discuss some of the motivations, exasperations and ambitions behind art magazines from the 1960s to the present day, broaching such questions as: What conditions compel a magazine to get started and thrive? How do magazines create and serve networks of writers and artists? What does an editor do that a writer and curator cannot?
Presented by Raven Row at Whitechapel Gallery, to coincide with the exhibition Five Issues of Studio International at Raven Row, until 3 May.
