Art Monthly- September 9th, 2011









Peter Suchin discusses Outrageous Fortune: Artists Remake the Tarot at Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea and then continues with John Douglas Millar to discuss John’s feature Art/Writing on why experimental writing thrives in the art world. There has been an upsurge in experimental writing, but why has it found its home in the art world rather than the literary industry? Is there a fundamental difference in how writers find audiences within these fields?

‘While academic and creative disciplines cross pollinate in the art world, they seem increasingly estranged in the literary world. The result is that the influence of experimental and avant-garde fiction waxes in the world of art while it wanes in the world of publishing.’

The programme is hosted by Matt Hale who has worked at Art Monthly since 1991.
