MATERIAL is a journal started by artists interested in the writings of other artists. We are a home for divergent opinions, uses, and appropriations of language, encouraging "speculations and appreciations, rantings if need be, phantasies, lectures, nocturnes...and inventions."(*). We solicit friction and conviviality both, from a wide community of artists. (*)The poet Robert Duncan (1919-1988), from an unpublished piece; quoted in Contemporary Poets, 4th ed.
