You are going to love this! Coorain has brought together 15 fantastic artists in one easy to carry package! Finally! Each artist made a spectacular image of critical-darling Coorain- one for each of twelve months, plus a special cover image and super special poster! Damn! And a digital option, included with all purchases or for a low low low price!

DEAD ART STAR

DEAD ART STAR is a response to celebrity culture and the ever-present gaze of the camera. It is a project that inspects the formats and structures of performative photography and explores the corporeal (queer) body through performance.

Risks and challenges

Having coordinated large groups of artists before, as well as print based projects, I anticipate few, if any, obstacles. I will be making every effort to have calendars to you all ASAP and truly don't expect any hiccups.
