Email to a new reviewer applying to write for Furtherfield earlier today…
Hi new reviewer,
Just to let you know we’re not interested in supporting shallow, boring, traditional ‘art market’ values, and are very much excited by artists/thinkers/musicians/hacktivists: who challenge the non-progressive, mainstream art world and its privileged based hierarchies with its top-down elitist histories and structures. Whilst exploring beyond (or at least critiquing) the established, gallery system, as part of their artistic process and the very culture these hegemonies produce. That’s just a little bit of what we’re about 😉
The question is, did I send it?
