Aesthetica Magazine Blog: New Issue: August/September Out Today.
Looks like a good issue…
There has been a shift in power and we are more in control of our experiences, but this begs the question, what legacy will this leave?
This issue examines the current state of play, and offers answers to this resonating question. In art, we look at the interplay between digital technologies, performance, and installation with Rafael Lozano-Hemmer in his exhibition, Recorders, which opens this September. Stuart Brisley is one of performance art’s instigators; with a prolific career spanning five decades, we review his seminal works from the 1970s. The Original Copy: Photography of Sculpture, 1839 to Today is a new exhibition that surveys over 100 works and illustrates how our definitions of sculpture have been altered by the photograph. Finally, a look at multiplicity and the defiance of categorisation with photographer, Jannica Honey.
