Monday is a limited-edition journal focused on critical art writing in the Pacific Northwest. Published twice a year by the Jacob Lawrence Gallery at the University of Washington School of Art + Art History + Design, it is a platform to support emerging and established critical voices and to help spur new ideas.
In 2017, the Gallery began hosting a series of gatherings for writers and artists to explore the intersection of theory and practice within contemporary art. Reviews and essays from those gatherings are published for the first time in this new journal.
Each volume of Monday is thematically driven, highlighting artists’ writings alongside other diverse perspectives on a particular topic. This inaugural volume, entitled Material Performance, focuses on materiality and transformation. It will be released with a run of 250 bound copies.
