Interjection Calendar 009

Montez Press is very pleased to present The Interjection Calendar 009, guest edited by Hasti. The Interjection Calendar is a 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. 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.

From the Editor’s Note by Hasti:
Is it hot? Does it look good? Are you proud to serve it? The writers and artists featured in this Calendar work and live at intersections of all kinds—geographies, practices, genders, cultures, canons, interests, specialisms—imagine the overlap in the venn diagram where cunty al-Khwarizmi stands louchely at the bar with Omar Khayyam in a latex dress, necking neon cocktails made with Smirnoff Ice as a mixer, and Rostam in Tom of Finland leather watching from the wall.

andriniki mattis, Pear Nuallak, Amalia Tenuta, Racheal Crowther, Rosa-Johan Uddoh, Waj Hussain, Jaakko Pallasvuo, Chloe Filani, Daisy Thomas, Aliaskar Abarkas, Carlos Mauricio Rojas and Kasra Jalilipour.
