Edited by Tess Maunder
Absolute Humidity, a new limited edition volume edited by Brisbane-based curator and writer Tess Maunder, features over thirty conversations with contemporary artists practicing in the Asia-Pacific region.
Absolute Humidity is a publication and research project that collectively engages with the conditions that many artists are working under today; trans-national relationships, ecological threats, exploitation, anxiety, sovereignty, politics, identity, disputed territories and the shifting weather. The book brings together key voices from the region; from Jakarta to Brisbane, Ho Chi Minh City to Mumbai, from Hong Kong to Dubai, to discuss these conditions and more.
To Become Two: Propositions for Feminist Collective Practice
Alex Martinis Roe
To Become Two: Propositions for Feminist Collective Practice offers perspective of artist Alex Martinis Roe's research into a genealogy of feminist political practices in Europe and Australia from the seventies until today.
Helen Johnson's new publication, Warm Ties, documents the exhibition of Warm Ties at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London and Artspace. This full colour publication includes original texts by Stephen Gilchrist and Helen Hughes.
Warm Ties is a co-publication by Artspace and the ICA, with support from Châtteau Shatto, Los Angeles, Pilar Corrias, London and Sutton Gallery, Melbourne. Edited by Juliette Desorgues and Talia Linz. ⠀
