Welcome to Issue 02 of Dovetail, where we explore the art of wandering, of moving purposefully yet slowly. What does it mean to travel in a time when it is widely restricted? How is the spirit nourished? How has the artistic process adapted? Local rambles and afternoons spent in nature connect many of the artists in this issue back to their studio practices in ways they hadn’t considered prior to having to slow down. And in many ways, not only the work itself but the means of sharing it and what it means to connect with others through it, have begun to take new shapes.
With artist Panteha Abareshi, we explore what it means when art spaces are ableist and why right now, in some ways, art may be more accessible than it’s ever been. We scale time and space with Alexandros Vasmoulakis, whose previous life as an illustrator and muralist still influences his work today. Gallery founder Ali Rossi tells us about New York City-based OLYMPIA, an initiative that until just recently operated out of the organizer’s apartment and online, and focuses on womxn artists.
We’re afforded a glimpse of the visions of eight photographers of African descent working around the globe through a curated feature by creative platform Afripedia.
