BurnAway proudly presents a conversation and talk with Brooklyn-based artist, writer, editor, and teacher Dushko Petrovich. 

One of the foremost thinkers on contemporary art, Petrovich is an engaging speaker who delivers critical and incisive perspectives on the art and institutions of our time. In his talk, “Publishing in the Expended Field,” Petrovich will chronicle his work with n+1, Paper Monument, and now DME, which has published Adjunct Commuter Weekly and will produce his forthcoming titles, The Daily Gentrifier, Privacy Magazine, Object Oriented Ontology Illustrated, and International Slav. Petrovich also guest edited the November/December 2013 issue of Art Papers, which focused on the form of the art magazine itself.

His most recent project, Adjunct Commuter Weekly, made its debut at the ICA Boston this past summer to widespread critical acclaim, including profiles in the Wall Street Journal, the New Yorker, and the Chronicle of Higher Education. His next publication, called The Daily Gentrifier, is forthcoming from DME this spring.
