MATERIAL exists as a platform for the artist’s voice. Each issue brings together a different group of artists who write, as well as a new collaboration with a graphic designer. During the production of this third issue, the designer Zak Jensen put forth the idea of concatenation– the act of linking together, or the state of being joined.
With contributions from Farrah Karapetian, Renee Petropoulous, Nate Harrison, James Welling, Natalie Häusler, Harold Abramowitz, Shana Lutker, Stephanie Taylor & Alice Könitz, Frank Chang and Emily Mast.
Includes a poster by Paul Zelevansky of ‘Let There Be Chairs’, an excerpt from The Book of Takes.
Edited by Kim Schoen and Ginny Cook, this new magazine from L.A. supports visual artists with textual concerns. Material is not a thematically driven nor "on-topic" publication, but rather an image-free, ad-free context for the materialization of artists' ideas, divergent opinions, thoughts and appropriations of language, with an experimental and criticial sensibility.
Issue two features contributions from: Adam Berg, Ellen Birrell, Ginny Cook, Maria Fusco, Jesse Aron Green, Daniel Hockenson, Jonathan Miles, Regine Petersen, Kim Schoen, Emma Shercliff, Jesper List Thomsen.
