Haunt Journal of Art is a graduate student-run, peer-reviewed, open access journal from the Department of Art at the University of California, Irvine. We believe speculative and innovative art writing practices are paramount to the development of radical thinking and imagination.
Haunt is a vessel for critical interrogations of writing as both a tool for artistic expression and a means for analyzing creative practices. Ours is a commitment to providing a platform for new textual forms and strategies wherein the production of writing and art may serve one another.
For our fourth volume, we ask: what kind of critical and polemical interventions can poetics make on how we speak of and engage artistic production? How can an oscillation between the visible and the invisible, between transparency and obscurity, bring clarity to our perceptual limitations as observers, creators, and thinkers? We invite subversive experimentations and poetic meditations that unearth sites of inquiry which blur the boundaries between language, image, and criticism.
