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.

2020/10 Rhea Dillon – DONALD DAHMER

Download

Rhea Dillon is an artist and writer working in a variety of media: from painting, video and poetry to sculpture, installation and olfaction. Exploring themes of class, race and gender, her work examines and abstracts the ‘rules of representation’ as a device to undermine contemporary Western culture. Continually seeking to question is an important part of Dillon’s practice, specifically what constitutes an ontology of Blackness versus the lived ontic, through her conceptually abstract works. She coined the phrase ‘humane afrofuturism’ as a practice of creating equality-led perspectives on how we visualise Black bodies. She has exhibited at Almine Rech, Peak Gallery, The British Film Institute, and Aperture NY to name a few. She is an Associate Lecturer at Central Saint Martins, UAL.

Yasmine Akim is a photojournalist and an arts writer based in London, she studied a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Photography at The London College of Communication.

Yasmine has exhibited her work at Autograph ABP as a part of ‘The Missing Chapter Collective’, The Horse Hospital & Ditto Press with her Feminist photo zine ‘Vagina Dentata’. Additionally, Yasmine was previously a content developer for Shades of Noir (UAL) and is currently training to become an associate lecturer at UAL, focusing on photography, social justice, black feminism, and queer theory through their ‘Teaching Within’ program.
