A curiosity about contemporary art, writing, and the way that ideas flow between the languages of both is the motivating force behind un Projects. As avid viewers and readers, we are constantly seeking texts that offer the creativeness and originality that characterises art, or searching for writing reflecting on art in new and imaginative ways. This is reflected in our aims for un Magazine.
The Subtext project was generated to further investigate the manifold approaches to writing undertaken by artists in their practice. The initial phase of Subtext, in June 2010, was a day-long symposium of discussions by artists, with Martha Rosler as keynote speaker. The second phase of Subtext was an exhibition at West Space, organised by a curatorium of un Projects members, held in February 2011.
