The Gray Center is excited to inaugurate our Sidebar series with a discussion between Gwen Allen (Associate Professor of Art History San Francisco State University) and Zachary Cahill (Gray Center Curator). Sidebar is a new series of conversations and events hosted by the Gray Center. This edition will focus on the ways in which artists use the magazine as “an alternative medium and experimental space.”
Allen has written extensively about art and design for publications such as Artforum, Bookforum, Art Journal, ArtMargins, and East of Bourneo. She is also the author of Artists’ Magazines: An Alternative Space for Art (MIT Press, 2011), and recently edited the volume The Magazine for the series Whitechapel: Documents of Contemporary Art series (MIT Press and the Whitechapel Gallery, 2016).
Our next Sidebar takes place the following Thursday, June 1st with art critic Jan Verwoert and curator Anthony Elms. Check back for more information soon!
