Issue 03: Tracing Movement

Spring 2019

Issue 03 seeks to examine the role contemporary art and artists play in shaping how we move through cultural, societal, ecological, and personal shifts. We invited writers and artists to join us as we explored the space between motion and change. As a result, this issue reflects our changing social and political climate and facilitates discourse surrounding both global and local phenomena, from immigration and ancestry to activism and community organizing. From Liz Morlock’s poignant evaluation of an art scene fraught with a perceived revolving-door syndrome to Betsy Willett’s careful cataloging of gestures within museum walls, “Tracing Movement” provides a lens through which the physical, social, and conceptual impact of movement can be viewed.
