Art Criticism & Other Short Stories

Helen Reed
Blank Cheque Press
11.5 × 18 cm
254 pp
Arts Writing, Criticism, Fiction

Originally produced and distributed by artist Helen Reed as a series of fanfiction zines, Art Criticism & Other Short Stories collects together fifteen of the very best of these texts — from deliriously concocted alternate realities and erotic fantasies, to cutting appraisals of gender and power. Featuring writing by a diverse lineup of artists, writers, curators and critics working in and alongside contemporary art , this anthology of oddball writing shows us just how critical and gushing true fandom can be, proving once and for all that these qualities are not mutually exclusive.

With contributions by Rose Bouthillier, Amber Dawn, Jen Delos Reyes, Amy Fung, Anna Gray & Ryan Wilson Paulsen, Onya Hogan-Finlay, Ariana Jacob, Sam Korman, Vanessa Kwan, Hazel Meyer, Dan Nelson, Darren O’Donnell, Carmen Papalia, Helen Reed, and Maya Suess.

Printed and bound by Blank Cheque Press in Vancouver.

Edition of 150.

Perfect-bound, b/w.
