The Big Ship is the home of innovative and provocative new art writing that challenges the traditional canon. This is achieved in two ways. Firstly by platforming both artists and writers with fresh and diverse perspectives, particularly those unafraid to break boundaries and, secondly, by using thorough research and appreciation only as a springboard for deeper enquiry and stylistic exploration. This often results in a range of the contemporary, the experimental, and the personal.
