MONDAY presents experiments in arts writing that invite readers to imagine future forms of criticism. The contributing writers have in common a playful approach to their writing. Their subjects extend beyond fine arts to include performance, style, manifestos — all manner of cultural expression. Published by the Jacob Lawrence Gallery at the University of Washington School of Art + Art History + Design, MONDAY seeks to be both accessible and rigorous, and above all to remind us that our approach to cultural criticism can be as heterogeneous as the themes it addresses.
Volume 4 has the title "White Pictures." It is guest edited by Danny Giles who was the 2019 Jacob Lawrence Legacy Resident. Julia Powers is the managing editor, and Emily Zimmerman is the founding editor.
