SALT. in conversation, Tenderbooks, London, Tuesday 30 June 2015, 4.00–6.00 p.m.
SALT. in conversation
Please join us for a conversation with the editors of SALT.
SALT. is a London based magazine which aims to bring feminist issues and conversations about the various registers of patriarchy in art and wider culture to the forefront of discussion. They publish essays, art writing, poetry, and art works as well as holding lectures, exhibitions and events.
SALT. is also an ongoing research project, with each editorial acting as a mini manifesto for the selected theme, and events acting as platforms for new discussion and debate around the paradigms of contemporary feminism and art.
SALT. was established in 2014 by four Fine Art students, out of a desire to facilitate a political discussion they felt was lacking, both institutionally and within their peer group. They launched their sixth issue ‘Manifesto’ last year and previous issues have focused on, ‘Anti-Work’, ‘Pageantry’, ‘Transparency’ and ‘Salirophilia’. Their upcoming issue, ‘Heterophobia’, is being developed in collaboration with Villa Design Group.
SALT. has become known for publishing a particular approach to first-person feminist writing that seeks to interrogate the intersections of public and private, and acceptable and non-acceptable displays of female presence.
Jala Wahid, Thea Smith, and Hannah Regel, will introduce their intentions with SALT. discussing the focus of previous issues, and reflecting upon how the magazine links to their wider artistic practice.
This will be followed by an informal Q&A with questions from students of the MRes Art: Theory and Philosophy course at Central Saint Martins, and the audience.
