Driven by the central question “What are we learning from artists today?” the first volume of the new series edited by Anthony Huberman and Jeanne Gerrity at the CCA Wattis, A Series of Open Questions, is informed by themes found in the work of Dodie Bellamy, such as contemporary forms of feminism and sexuality, the rebirth of the author, and ways in which vulnerability, perversion, vulgarity, and self-exposure can be forms of empowerment. Where are the tiny revolts? comprises a broad array of contributions, including memoir, theoretical essay, art-historical analysis, poetry, and fiction, as well as diverse visual elements, ranging from photographs by Anne McGuire and Mike Kuchar, among others, collages by Mary Beth Edelson, and drawings by Rosemarie Trockel.
