Log 4 Artist Run Spaces



Issue Four: View contents pageThis issue is dedicated to all those ephemeral art spaces run on love and the smell of an oily rag.

Danny Butt profiles Auckland's Teststrip, Russell Storer looks at Sydney's Side-on, while Melbourne's Grey Area, City Lights and First Floor all come up for discussion. Also, reports from Berlin, Aachen and Tijuana. Auckland's Rm3 and Fiat Lux give themselves a pat on the back, as do Christchurch's High St Project and Dunedin's Honeymoon Suite. And if talking shop gets you down there's plenty of fiction and poetry to cheer you up, not to mention a superb pinup of a lesser known Wellington gallery run entirely in a toilet cubicle.
