Afterall Journal Issue 53

Part of an ongoing collaboration with Pacific, Afterall Journal is a curated collection of artists, contexts, events, works and exhibitions that invite you to explore the changes of medium, media, and mediation throughout history and culture.


Issue 53 ‘Medium/Metaphor/Milieu’ looks at the exhibitionary in and beyond exhibitions. Gathered through the notions of medium and milieu, it looks at a range of practices and modes of thinking that foreground the exhibitionary in concrete, spatial, architectural and experiential terms. In parallel, the artists and authors included also explore the risks and potential of metaphors as a site of exhibition-making.
