PUSH:PULL new.jpeg

PUSH/PULL is an online journal sponsored by Culture Push, a platform for ideas and thoughts that are still in development. PUSH/PULL is a virtual venue that allows us to present a variety of perspectives on civic engagement, social practice, and other issues that need attention. PUSH/PULL will help to situate the Fellows and the work they do within a critical discourse, and act as a forum for an ongoing dialogue between the Fellows, the Culture Push community, and the world at large.




ISSUE 6 // SPRING 2018

Guest Editors and Current Fellows, Chinatown Art Brigade members Tomie Arai and ManSee Kong, gather writing from collaborators and allies who share a deep concern for the future of Chinatowns, both locally and globally as the tides of hyper-development and real estate investments threaten to displace residents who have called these places home for decades. Each work powerfully demonstrates the need to draw connections between displaced low-income communities of color and the strength of grass-roots, community-led resistance and resilience. With contributions from Huiying Chan, Diane Wong and Mei Lum, Alina Shen, Emily Mock, the Gòngmíng Collective for Language Justice, and the Chinatown Art Brigade. English Homepage

Issue 5 // Fall 2017

How can we understand our complex relationship with the other species who share and shape our world? This issue brings together contributions from a video and new media artist, historical marine biologist, artist collective, and three visual artists who provide unique perspectives on the importance of understanding the ways non-human animals pervade our physical and symbolic world.

With contributions from Joseph Moore, Terike Haapoja and Laura Gustafsson, Carolyn Hall, The Environmental Performance Agency, Aida Šehović, and Linnea Ryshke.


Número Cuatro // Spring 2017

Guest Editor and current fellow, Noemí Segarra Ramírez, gathers writing from her Puerto Rican collaborators and friends that addresses individual praxis and the unique ways in which they individually and collectively question systems of cultural production in Puerto Rico. 
This issue is bilingual, with writing in both Spanish and English, reflecting the hybrid nature of Puerto Rico and the state of displacement experienced by its citizens. As Noemí says, focusing on this sense of displacement brings out a "cavilación en la ambigüedad" (a brooding in ambiguity), fertile ground for this expansive collection of writing and images.  

With contributions from Noemí Segarra Ramírez, Andrea Bauzá and Félix Rodríguez-Rosa.
