EDITORIAL


Our Artist of the Month for July 2019 is Manchester-based artist Joe Hancock. In a change from our usual interview-style format, Joe presents texts, information and images that represent his work, thinking and identity.

There's still time to submit a proposal for our Coventry Biennial Commission Opportunity. One Axisweb member will receive £500 to exhibit new or existing work at this year's Coventry Biennial which takes place 4 October - 24 November 2019. Deadline for applications: 9am, Monday 8 July.

Our Five2Watch selection brings together five artists who make sculpture: Sophie Kate Morton, Madi Acharya-Baskerville, Emily Glass, Deborah Brown and Karen Logan. 

In this month's Playlist we present a selection of videos involving material change. Featuring: Ellie Doney, Pak Keung Wan, Chris Dunseath and Karen Wallis.

Coventry Artspace are staging an exhibition in Axisweb's new Vacant Space in Coventry city centre on 20 July. Past and present Coventry Artspace studio holders will be showing their work ahead of this year's Coventry Biennial in October.

We have more copies of our Social Works?: Open for sale. Social Works?: Open speaks to the precariousness of socially engaged practice during an extended period of government-led cuts to arts funding across the UK, and the continued importance of maintaining and supporting a critical voice within socially engaged art.Contributors include: Jen Delos Reyes, Kerry Morrison, R.M. Sánchez-Camus, Claire Mead, They Are Here, Harvey Dimond, Lauren Velvick, Les Monaghan and Joe Cotgrave. 

In our monthly What's On Guide we share events from our Axis Directory members that are happening in July.
