A collection of fan fiction about artworks by artists, Art Criticism and Other Short Stories explores what a fanatical “too close” reading can offer to art writing. This issue takes up bodily responses to art, including a text about sculptural attraction in relationship to the work of Jade Yumang, an ode to sculptor Louise Bourgeois’s ponytail, and a meditation on literally ingesting the work of Aleesa Cohene. Writing by Vanessa Kwan, Hazel Meyer, Ariana Jacob, Maya Suess and Carmen Papalia.

Softcover, staple-bound, b/w and colour, dustjacket doubles as a fold-out poster
