You Are Here

How have artists and arts workers been conducting their careers and their lives during the last eighteen months? This issue features six snapshots of our current moment — field reports from a difficult present, with an eye toward possible futures. The artist-authors all hail from the Pacific Northwest, but the challenges they explore are shared by art scenes across the US: the isolation of the pandemic, the ongoing struggle for equity in the arts, the tensions of gentrification. Working outside of large art centers, they also chronicle the profound satisfaction of focusing on regional communities, forging hope, and fostering social change.

Edited by Bean Gilsdorf, You Are Here is the final issue of our durational magazine; new commissions appear each week.
