ArtReview- Visual Column

Dean Hughes (Artist)

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


In September 2008 I was invited by Mark Rappolt, the editor of the international art magazine ArtReview to work on a project titled Visual Column. The project involved working within the typographic space of the magazine over six consecutive issues. This was the first and only time that this project has been offered to an artist and the opportunity allowed me to investigate thematically over a number of issues of the publication rather than the more normal and established idea of the singular artistic intervention. The invitation was predicated on the basis that my research has often employed seriality and the explicit use of quotidian and overlooked perfunctory objects such as lined A4 paper, Bus Tickets, Hole Punches, for example. This project invited me to intervene within the pages of ArtReview over six issues with a working method that would use a repeated theme or material process. The six images that are used in the Visual Column are not images that are referring to an absent object. The object is made to be photographed and to appear as an image within the typographical space of a magazine.
