Event description

Description

NAVA in partnership with Museum of Brisbane and independent writer and curator Tess Maunder present Independent publishing now: a public forum which discusses the opportunities that independent writing and publishing that present for artists and curators.

This is a free event, all are welcome to attend.

Australia is at a crossroads in the publishing sector. One the one hand we have key magazines closing down or downsizing such as Broadsheet and Realtime, whilst others generally surviving on subsiding writer's fee to stay afloat. On the other hand, we have seen a rise in Artbook fairs and publishing discourse with the iteration of Melbourne Art Book Fair at the NGV, Artspace's VOLUME art fair addition to Brisbane’s own ABBE Art Book event. There has also been a shift in which independent artists and curators are engaging with online platforms to document, archive and disseminate information about their work. What do these changes mean for Brisbane's cultural landscape and how artists discuss their work and engage in critical discussion?

Let’s talk about how publishing, editing and writing inform art practices in Brisbane now -

are local Brisbane based practitioners responding to this shift?

Which Brisbane ARIs have a publishing arm?

What opportunities are there for local writers?

How is academic writing impacting practice?

And how is Brisbane responding to the online vs. print debate?

Speakers include:

Katherine Dionysius

Travis Dewan

Ryan Presley

Naomi O'Reilly

Panel faciltated by Tess Maunder

This forum has been made possible with generous support by Museum of Brisbane and Arts Queensland.
