Interjection Calendar
The Interjection Calendar is an online 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, in line with the calendar theme. At the end of the year the collection is published, demonstrating a diverse range of collaborations and experimental works. The calendar reflects the current importance of online content media, pushing image/text relationships in this domain through contemporary art writing.

The Interjection Calendar 007 is supported by:

2021/10 Audrey Ryan – Buried, Alive

Download

Audrey Ryan (b.1989) is a figurative and portrait artist whose self and work are informed by years spent in punk/hardcore communities, years spent in BDSM communities, years of classical ballet training, years spent bartending, years spent living with chronic illnesses, and years lost to eating disorders. While Ryan’s work seeks to confront and question our architecture of shame, control and power, it is also interested in exploring pain, healing, intimacy and love.

Ryan holds a BFA in Drawing/Painting and a BS in Art Education from SUNY New Paltz. She was the first manager of the Con Artist Collective (LES, NYC) and founded its residency program, Epic Epoch. Ryan has taught various workshops and was a Teaching Artist at the Children’s Museum of the Arts of NY. She has worked with organizations such as the Stigma Unbound Collective, New Chamber Ballet and the Royal Institute of Stockholm. Ryan’s zines have been published both independently as well as with Endless Editions; copies of which can be found in the MoMA library and the NY Public Library. She has participated in several residencies including The Vermont Studio Center, Meeting House, and The Wassaic Project. She is also the resident artist at the House of Mistress Blunt. Her paintings can be found in films such as Long Nights, Short Mornings (2016) and Hide and Seek (upcoming) and interviews with her can be found in Inked Magazine and more recently, on the podcast Art Uncovered.

2021/09 Gabi Davies – CISLESS

Download

Gabriella Davies (she/her) is a 29 year old artist who has run away from being poor and marginalised in Stoke to live the artist's dream of being poor and marginalised in London. Previously described as ‘a reasonable balance of swearing & insight’ and ‘chic & tacky all at the same time’, she's a working-class trans woman from the midlands with an answer for everything. Known as the queen of one-liners, with a knack for killer titles, she plays to her strengths; taking class and gender and turning them on the world as her lens.

Gabi received her MA from Royal College of Art in 2019, and served as the institution’s first openly trans SU president. She is also a member of Babeworld, was selected as part of Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2020, completed a digital residency with Deptford X, and was shortlisted for the Institute of Contemporary Arts New Creatives programme.

2021/08 Odie Spinelli – Friends and Comrades:

Download

Odie Spinelli is a non-binary working class multidisciplinary artist from Minneapolis, MN, United States. Their work is rooted in their experience with addiction, mental health and illness, gender, sexuality, politics, and relationships. Known as @not.yr.boyfriend on Instagram, their colourful, introspective memes are meant to be a healing voice amongst a sea of depression memes and infighting. Aside from memes they produce other content such as writing, zines, jewellery, and have a rich history of performance art and curation in the Minneapolis queer scene at spaces like Madame and Patrick's Cabaret.
