July 1 2010


July 1, 2010. In this issue, we include interviews with Natasha Wheat about social practice and photographer Marion Gray about documenting significant moments of Performance Art.  Through these conversations, art can be understood as a negotiated social encounter in space and time.  And in the reviews, tenuousness, arbitration, and ambivalence are all givens in encounters with contemporary art.  But can things that are binding be teased out from temporary situations and subjective perspectives? Or what does it mean to rely on the imagined, the conspired, and the dreamed to find the truth? 

We are honored to present a portfolio of photographs by Marion Gray. Enjoy - PM
