Art Licks are carrying out a new project for its printed magazine: producing three issues (issues 26 – 28) from different cities across the country: Newcastle, Bristol and Birmingham. This trilogy of Art Licks magazine aims to explore the varying practices and artist communities across the country.
This trilogy begins with issue 26 from Newcastle, which has been produced in partnership with The NewBridge Project and co-edited between Rebecca Huggan (Director, NewBridge) and Holly Willats (Director, Art Licks).
Art Licks Issue 26 hopes to shine a light on the practices of artists, curators and writers based in the North East through the exploration of its theme, Radical Gestures.
Through this title, Art Licks presents a range of practices that help to challenge the status quo and shift perceptions; practices that support different communities, that are outward-facing, or that are unafraid to try to explore complex issues. From very small gentle gestures, to people who are campaigning: the magazine offers an uplifting insight into how contemporary art supports and brings people together.
