Although magazines are generally composed of a sequence of numbered pages, there is nothing linear about the experience of reading one. You flip through half the issue to find your favorite editorial, turn back a few pages to read an interview, skip to the very end for the rest of the story, and get distracted every which way by the endless array of images pulling you in yet another direction. What we intend to convey in Magazine Dreams is a sense of that experience—the chaotic ebb and flow between text and image in the shifting, visceral dreamscape of a magazine spread, offering you, the viewer, a glimpse into the culture both reflected in and created on its pages.
The exhibition images were drawn from work produced in magazine-focused tutorials and Arts Workshops taught by Lise Friedman.
