Subject: Materiality


From: Alice Cannon <acannon<-a>
Date: Monday, September 1, 2014
The fourth issue of Materiality is all about surfaces--asphalt,
insect exoskeletons, cement, chenille, books bound in human skin and
much more.  Materiality is a general-interest magazine from a
material perspective.  It features essays, artist interviews,
fiction, images and verse--all in all it is an excellent weekend or
lunchtime read (also it makes a good present).  For this issue
paintings conservator John Payne has contributed a piece about
gilded frames, and natural sciences conservator Danielle Measday
takes us through the process of mounting a koala skin.  There's also
an interview with Melbourne artist Theo Strasser, reflective pieces
by artists Leonie Connellan (printmaker) and Rod Gray (painter and
printmaker), and an interview with Tim Lynch of Silvergleam

It can be pre-ordered via Pozible up until September 21, 2014


Past issues (PRECIOUS, TIME and BOOK) are available at the
pinknantucket press shop


The theme of the next issue will be FAKE, so if you have any ideas
for articles please get in touch.  (In person, if you will be
attending the ICOM-CC conference in Melbourne).  The possibilities
are endless: replica gold nuggets, fake teeth, imitation ivory,
material clues that lead to the detection of faked paintings,
diaries and objects.  I'd love to have lots of contributions from
conservators, curators and other cultural heritage types.
Submissions are due March 31, 2015.  Article and story lengths are
typically between 500-3,000 words.
