Following on the previous post, here’s the catalogue.
A thoroughly documented review of curator Julia Greenway’s tenure as Disjecta Contemporary Arts Center’s 2017-18 curator in residence, and also the first major publication produced under communications standards we helped develop for Disjecta ED Blake Shell.
Conceptually, Greenway’s curatorial practice is concerned with issues of gender, economics, and environment as processed through digital media. Visually, the work she presents tends to be hard-edged, strongly colored, confrontational, and attuned to the ephemeral and slightly seedy nature of digital communication.
The book’s basic form is defined by the restrained, ranged-left typography of Disjecta’s brand language and the architecture of the gallery guides produced for each of the four shows. It is in itself a digital product: while the cover is traditional offset, the text was printed using a direct-from-RGB workflow to the Komori IS29 digital press at @premierpress , helping to preserve the high-chroma colors of the work shown.
