Imagine Otherwise is an anthology of books on queer, non-binary, or female-identifying artists who have produced a substantial body of work but may have no publication concerning their art or life in print at the time of commissioning. The series—a living archive and a modular score emphasizes the concept of "female worlding" at its center, presenting books that serve as field guides into artistic lives that remain unexplored or inaccessible. The overall proposition, to “imagine” a world “otherwise,” stems from the desire to find a different way of looking, writing, and reading about art. To consciously create a form of publishing that allows art to be examined unreservedly, unburdened of the limits imposed by any perceived “dominant hand” of hegemony. Imagine if every book on art was authored or narrated via the distinct contours of the artist’s work and/or biography—the writer and artist guiding the reader through a personal lens, in their distinct voice, rarely conforming to a singular style. Each book in the series is conceived as an exploratory document and collaborative composition. Together, author and artist, dead or alive, propose acts of worldbuilding—fulfilling a dream to explode the sanctioned modes through which art is experienced in the collective imagination.
