Artists Interviewing Artists, Digitally.
| Documented Dialogues > - a project of the Chicago Artists Coalition - is an alternative and auxiliary form of the artist interview. We initiate conversation between two parties with an active concern in the arts - and documents their dialogue as a fly on the wall, screen, or page. How might the documentation of the interview serve its content rather than abstracting it into an editorial form?
Here we provide the platform for discussion, conversation, dialogue, or sharing that might enlighten and expose current issues, ideas, and topics among contemporary artists, curators, makers, and thinkers - via the technologies and platforms we are already using to communicate with each other.
| Documented Dialogues > is produced by Matt Mehlan & David Hall.
