FLOOR: Poetics of Everyday Critique

We are writing to announce the first manifestation of FLOOR gathering together a group of works from a range of media, all of which address forms of criticality inherent to art practice. As the extended name suggests, we are interested in using the framework of the "everyday" to expand notions of what is counted as art while at the same time making specific cases for art's value, function, and endurance in our variously endangered world.

For our first manifestation, we solicited work focusing on the relationship between Necessity and Immensity. We provided a statement and a list of questions to each contributor serving as loose guides, or prompts, for what followed.

You will find work from new and familiar names, such as Nathaniel Mackey, Fred Moten, Geoffrey G. O'Brien, and Juliana Spahr, among others.

If you wish to contact us, we can be reached at: floorjournal@gmail.com

We hope you enjoy the work!
