Montez Press is very pleased to present THE INTERJECTION CALENDAR 007, featuring work by Hassnat Sikander & Jon Edgley, Lizzie Homersham, leah coughlan, Jamie Steedman, Tanaka Fuego, Pete MacHale, Mark Schoenfeld, Odie Spinelli, Gabi Davies, Audrey Ryan, Matilde Cerruti Quara, and Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley, and guest edited by artist Ashleigh Williams, who leads the Babeworld collective.
From the Editor’s Note by Ashleigh Williams: This collection of writing centers under-represented communities, from being a mixed-race gyal in a club, to, well, the Kentucky Fried Anti-Christ. Yep, you heard that right. Kentucky Fried Anti-Christ. The format of the calendar allows the artists to have control of how they express their experience, and over 2021 THE INTERJECTION CALENDAR 007 has been a place to platform artists and thinkers who have used the space for reflection, critical dialogue, or even just to express their love for JT from City Girls. This Calendar offers a dialogue that extends further than pre-conceived notions of identity, and a platform for those who are oppressed to exist beyond being labelled an ‘activist’, and beyond being dictated to by societal expectations of being marginalised.
Fiction. Literary Nonfiction. Art. LGBTQ+ Studies. Women’s Studies. Anthology.
Ashleigh Williams (she/her) leads Babeworld, a collective which seeks to create a more representative art world through the creation of art, fundraising and creating grants, and facilitation of events - for those who are marginalised in the arts. With an emphasis on collaboration and co-creation, Babeworld's practice focuses on themes of political and societal identity, specifically disability/access, neurodivergence, sex work and race.
