The White Review no. 16 features interviews with Elizabeth Peyton, who discusses her emotionally charged still lifes and portraits, Cally Spooner on her performance art, and writer, artist and filmmaker Gary Indiana, who talks about how it is possible to transform personal experience into literature. Also in this issue: Orit Gat considers the tendency towards homogeneity in the way that art is presented on the internet, and Evan Harris discusses his experience of the failures of British education. Lawrence Abu Hamdan – an artist and ‘private ear’ – offers a verbatim transcription of an interview undertaken by a refugee in application for asylum. The applicant is asked to speak, without pause, for fifteen minutes, so that her accent can be used to identify her. The White Review continues to publish a plurality of voices in new literature, from Martin MacInnes’s systematic critique, to Chris Kraus and Alexandra Kleeman, who use fiction to explore how time changes our relationship to place, to other people and ourselves. In translation, Tristan Garcia delivers a story on pop music, plagiarism, and the fallacy of creative inspiration. Lastly, we bring you the lyrical experimentalism of Geoffrey G. O’Brien’s poetry, alongside Sophie Seita’s investigation into language.
