Midwest Magazine Back Catalogue

Now Available Online

24 Apr 2020

Midwest was established by The Govett-Brewster Art Gallery as a bi-annual magazine.

The magazine ran from 1992 to 1996 with the first four issues published by the Govett-Brewster before relocating to Dunedin Public Art Gallery.

The Govett-Brewster has now made these available to download and read from the website.

Created by then director, John McCormack, and curator, Robert Leonard; they set out in their debut editorial about its aim to be an independent magazine, and not just to create content based on the Gallery’s programme but also provide a space for a variety of voices to comment on issues of importance to the arts scene.

 

Take a look back at content from leading New Zealand and international artists, writers and curators, such as Ruth Watson’s essay ‘Madonna, No Sweat’ discussing the pop icon’s book publication, condensed versions of Gallery Talks, like Stuart McKenzie’s ‘Turn Out The Light’, given in conjunction with Robert Leonard’s After Dark Exhibition, and McCormack’s opinion piece on the influence of the New Right on the Cultural Sector.
