Issue 05: No Boundaries

Summer 2020

$18.00

Our planning for “No Boundaries” began before May 5, 2020, when George Floyd was murdered by a white police officer in Minneapolis and the world ignited in protest over countless Black lives lost to systemic violence. Given that fact, this issue may feel anachronistic, but the messages it contains are not. Issue 05 features the work of artists, writers, curators, and collectives who have long been advocating for a new normal. These voices, among many others, spotlight the crucial role that art and discourse play in disrupting long-standing structures of inequality. 

Cover: Yu-Wen Wu, Bundle Stories, 2019.

Includes: Poster designed by OJ Slaughter.
