The title ‘Little Magazine’ is a reference to a form of periodical or short-run exquisite journal that would be passed under the table like samizdat. A magazine for connoisseurs that blends sumptuous production with layered detail and refined taste.
This layering reflects the complex referential and contextual underpinnings of the artists’ work represented in the exhibition providing a platform for artwork that seeks to open up critical positions with self-reflexive rigour at a historical moment when these qualities are not de rigeur.
