Artists: Onyeka Igwe, Yasmine Akim, Rhea Dillon, Elif Saydam & Maxi Wallenhorst and George Nesbitt.
“The turbulent, hopeful and at points frankly wretched social, political and economic twists and turns of this year have reinforced the respect we have for the artists and writers we work with and publish, and have reiterated the importance of an active sense of community and the need for a collective desire to reimagine potential futures with vigour. The Interjection Calendar exists in opposition to borders, which have become harder to cross for many in recent times, and firmly in accordance with international unity. The collection you are about to read embodies this spirit, including contributions from many locations around the world, seeking to embrace the unexpected and curious within contemporary art practices dealing with writing in multiple forms.
At Montez Press we are committed to work which takes risks, the Interjection Calendar publication disrupts the status quo and aims to educate in multiple and non-didactic ways. With this in mind, it is our pleasure to introduce the contributors to the Interjection Calendar 2020: Tingying Ma, The Right Lube, Jasmine Gibson, Elise Wortley, Saucy Sez, Miranda Shutler, Róisín Tapponi, Onyeka Igwe, Yasmine Akim, Rhea Dillon, Elif Saydam & Maxi Wallenhorst and George Nesbitt.
The Interjection Calendar is an on and offline project, devised and hosted by Montez Press. Each month an artist or writer is commissioned to produce a new piece of work for release on our website. The PDF can be downloaded for free and there are 12 releases per year. At the end of the year the collection is published, demonstrating a diverse range of collaborations and experimental works, mapping the year in contemporary art writing, with equal space held for the emerging and the established. The Calendar reflects the current importance of online content media, pushing the relationship between image and text in this domain.” - Montez Press
