counterpose archives aims to create transformative discourses about art writing and publishing in Australia, centering intersectionality and self-defined agency through knowledge in practice. Rooted in an exploration of voice in art writing, this project serves as a platform for resource-building and professional development, challenging the cultural hegemony in art publishing. At the heart of counterpose archives lies the interplay between redefinition and continuous adaptation of knowledge and practice.

At this inaugural two-hour workshop that prioritises emerging and established BIPOC creatives, art writers, publishers and artists are invited to further their practice. The workshop will involve an exploration of translating the visual politics of art into accessible writing, inspired by bell hooks’ Art on my mind: visual politics. Participants will collaborate on a creative project during the workshop, marking the inception of an iterative and ongoing resource-building initiative.
