Proximity 002 (Cover)

Verse, New York, New York, 2008

Description

A Chicago-based art journal providing an alternative review of contemporary art and culture, Proximity strives “to unearth and map underrepresented artistic endeavors in all locations and localities.” The second issue gives a whimsical title—the “Imaginary Cities Issue”—to this collection of writing and documentation of little-known artists, ephemeral art scenes and artistically inspirational locations around the world. The cover photography is an appropriately abstract cityscape by Daniel Everett. 

Juror Notes

A well-designed and digestible journal. Format, uncoated paper and grid are good in the hand and easy to read. Unpretentious and functional.

This publication feels natural and smart as the cover sets you up for a variety of content within.

Typography sets the tone and provides a foundation for many varied and interesting elements.
