Three decades into the long culture wars, how are artists, scholars, and cultural organizations navigating shifting political, community, and financial tides? Art Journal Open presents a collection of responses to this pressing question from twenty-three artists, curators, scholars, writers, and cultural workers, with an introduction from Sarah Kanouse.
Dushko Petrovich leads a series of conversations about the tensions and processes of art publication, speaking to the parties involved with, and implicated by, Steven Nelson’s two-part Hyperallergic essay of June 2018.
Risham Majeed reflects on the current exhibition Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination at The Met Cloisters, looking at how the disjunctions of architecture, costumery, and religious iconography “join to create cohesive desires, unmoored from historical boundedness.”
Sarah Kanouse, Jeremy Liu, Catherine Morris, and Mimi Thi Nguyen seek 500-word responses from communities of art-making, scholarship, and exhibition practice regarding public funding for the arts in an environment of heightened scarcity and competitiveness.
