POSTPONED - Journal Launch: Art Writing, Paraliterature & Intrepid Forms of Practice

Sat 4 August 2018

This event has been postponed, a new date will be announced.

Following the fire at Glasgow School of Art and the O2 ABC music venue, the Centre for Contemporary Arts remains within the cordoned area in Garnethill. At this time, there is no set date for re-entry, and the centre expects to remain closed for the duration of July and August.

We are working with our programme partners who had scheduled events throughout this period. Details of new venues and cancellations are here.

The latest issue of the Journal of Writing in Creative Practice, published by Intellect, focuses on the field and form of art writing.

'Art Writing, Paraliterature and Intrepid Forms of Practice', is edited by Susannah Thompson and Laura Edbrook and features creative-critical contributions from Katrina Palmer, Laurence Figgis, Gillian Wylde, Joanne Tatham, Lindsay Seers, Elizabeth Reeder, Amanda Thomson, Laura Edbrook and Susannah Thompson.

This special issue represents a multiplicity of attitudes and breadth of approaches by practitioners all working within or in close proximity to visual art. As a collection, they exemplify the mutability of ‘writing in creative practice’ as it exists in relation to art and the art world. The speculative, performative and material forms of writing here evidence the deployment of wilfully undisciplined and de-instrumentalised practices of contemporary criticism and alternative academic ecologies.

Published in January 2018, the launch will present readings, performances and presentations from contributors.

The journal launch coincides with the start of a new MLitt in Art Writing at The Glasgow School of Art in September 2018. See LINK for further details.
