Art/Writing: Melbourne Editors & Publishers in Conversation at Melbourne Now
NGV Community Hall
Saturday 22 February 2014
Presented by un Magazine
un Magazine is a contemporary art magazine published in Melbourne since 2004. Art and writing from the magazine’s ten year history is featured in un Retrospective as part of Melbourne Now (level 2, NGV Australia). For this Community Hall event un Magazine has invited a sample of editors and publishers from Melbourne’s burgeoning independent art publishing scene to discuss their individual approaches to art and writing. Facilitated by Rosemary Forde, speakers include: Robert Cook and Benjamin Forster, 2014 co-editors of un Magazine; Fayen d’Evie, director of 3-ply; Kelly Fliedner and Rowan McNaught, co-editors of West Space Journal.

Kelly Fliedner & Rowan McNaught | West Space Journal
The West Space Journal is an online platform with commissions & criticism from artists, writers, musicians & designers who have a particular interest in the implications and practice of contemporary art and its application online. The WSJ is an important platform to continue West Space’s remarkable history of writing and publication, and aims to extend ideas from the local into national and international contexts.
Robert Cook & Benjamin Forster| un Magazine
'too marty mc-fly for white guys' bi coastal editors of the 2014 uns will read excerpts from their self-published 2015 magazine 'un 2014: a retrospective of what went fast and what went wild'. featuring words, letters and the flipside of diagrams interpreted as sentences, the pair will woo each other like literary love achers lost in the visual world trying to fight their way back to an experi(?)mental plane. though still semi-broken from the weight of their achievements editing the 2014 uns, their dialogue will also be an effort to face up to the ways their emo-conceptual editorship made a newly polyvalent writing field by failing them and their readership in some of the most deliberate and thoughtless of ways.
