CAPRICIOUS No. 13 - Water

Capricious No.13 - WATER is Now Available!
Capricious Publishing is pleased to announce the release of Capricious No. 13 - WATER. This issue is guest curated by independent creative director JOFF and Sadaf Rassoul Cameron, director of Kindle Project.

With the theme of Water, Capricious delves into one of the most pressing global concerns of the 21st century, finding a dynamic intersection between social consciousness and fine arts photography.  Culled from thousands of submissions, the editorial selection evokes not only the most visually profound forms of water, but documents our shifting relationship with water, whether it be through celebration, or sense of loss.

Capricious No.13 moves through sections like Arid, Drift, and Quiet, a fluid visual narrative honoring water. And speaks to our palimpsest-like landscape, where the rise and fall of water lines are marked, and the history of water remains tangible. The work selected explores a myriad of watery dimensions, from the intimate, as water spills into our personal histories, quietly shaping our daily rituals; to global, as water is tamed, an ancient presence spun through industrialization. What ultimately comes to surface is to what degree water, in turn, overwhelms and overcome us. Also included, is a special chapter of curated texts by Hanna Wilde, including diverse variations on the theme, from poetry to political essay, from stage performance to film excerpt.

This is a celebration of water, a call to action and reflection, where conceptual aesthetic notions and global urgency coalesce.

Booth Number Q19

Founded by gallerists in 1970, Art Basel stages the world's premier art shows for modern and contemporary works, sited in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong. Defined by its host city and region, each show is unique, which is reflected in its participating galleries, the artworks on display and the parallel content programming produced in collaboration with the local institutions. In addition to ambitious stands featuring leading galleries from around the globe, each show's singular exhibition sectors and artistic events spotlight the latest developments in the visual arts, offering visitors new ideas, new inspiration and new contacts in the artworld.

From December 6 through 9, Miami Beach, Florida, will host the 11th edition of Art Basel, the most prestigious art show in the Americas. More than 260 leading galleries from North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa will take part, showcasing works by more than 2,000 artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.




Newsstand @ NADA

Founded in 2002, New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is a not-for-profit collective of professionals working with contemporary art. Their mission is to create an open flow of information, support, and collaboration within their field and to develop a stronger sense of community. Each December in Miami, NADA runs a renowned art fair to vigorously pursue our goals of exploring new or underexposed art that is not typical of the “art establishment.” NADA’s fair is held in parallel with Art Basel Miami Beach and is recognized as a much needed alternative assembly of the world’s youngest and strongest art galleries dealing with emerging Contemporary Art. It is the only major American art fair to be run by a non-profit organization.

Capricious is a magazine, artist book and queer arts zine publisher, and curatorial project dedicated to showcasing emerging fine art photography. Contributors and subject matter span the globe. And while constant change is a primary Capricious trait, there are also definite common visual threads running throughout its history. Capricious has an affinity for things like animals, androgyny, opposition, reclaimed life, lust, natural as well as urban life, intimacy, revolution and nostalgia. As a leading fine art photography project, Capricious occupies a rare and whimsical space, operating as both a tool for discovering new talent and as an artists’ oasis.

**Capricious is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the purposes of Capricious must be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
