Privileged as compelling primary sources that illuminate artistic practice, artists’ writings also strongly resist categorization and traditional narrative forms. Text/Context publishes collections of essays, statements, articles, lectures, and other written interventions by Canadian artists, collating published and unpublished texts that are otherwise scattered, hard to find, or not easily accessible to readers. In bringing together artists’ written works, the series explores the interrelations of what and how artists write, as well as where they publish, to the rest of their practice. Books in the series illuminate an artist’s relationship not only to her/his/their own work, but to their peers and to broader social, economic, cultural, and political questions. Text/Context is edited by Geoffrey Robert Little. Artists or editors interested in the series can write to: email@example.com.
