Join TCR Art Editor Jacquelyn Zong-Li Ross this Thursday, October 20th at 7pm at Western Front for a conversation about art writing, publishing, and community.

Back Issues: A Conversation About Art Writing and Publishing will explore the histories and contemporary work of Canadian art publications. Four publications will each be highlighting a noteworthy back issue, showcasing how their publication has grown, shifted, or taken risks. Back Issues aims to initiate a conversation about the value of art writing and publishing, not simply as timely reverberations but as materials that influence art history and advocate for who and what is remembered. The panel will feature Jacquelyn Zong-Li Ross, Art Editor of The Capilano Review; Zool Suleman, Editor and Co-founder of Rungh; Maxine Proctor, Editor of BlackFlash; and Susan Gibb, Executive Director of Western Front, representing the former Front Magazine.

Masks are mandatory for in-person attendance.

For those who can’t attend in person, a livestream of the talk will be available here.

Thank you to Maxine Proctor and Western Front for organizing this program.
