Marking the launch of TAKE Fiction (Vol. 3, Issue 2)
For this issue of TAKE on art, we return to an often-quoted maxim, “Writing about art is like dancing about architecture.” There is perhaps some truth to this. Is writing any less of a creative exercise than art making? Or does the creative in writing reside only in its fiction? Art writers have for long woven entire characters, histories and narratives around a single line. They have woven stories too. But unlike critique in fiction vis-a-vis allegory, fictio-criticism has been an underrated, under-practiced art form.
The panel discussion explores some of these themes that have gone into the making of the current issue.
