EXTRA is an Australian networked zine collaboration building from past, present and future ‘living’ archival art initiatives. In particular, EXTRA Zine builds out from extensive ARI Remix memory work collaborations 2011-2021. We are thrilled and delighted to launch Issue # 37 on 18 May 2023. EXTRA Zine collaborations aim to place added emphasis on the hidden histories, marginalised narratives and digitised artists’ ephemera – ‘at risk’ artists’ ephemera – safeguarded in the personal archives of artists and artworkers. Activists, co-creatives among many others who were directly involved in the expanded and expanding Queensland/Australian artist-run ecology in the 1940 to Now temporality.
This special tribute to long-term collaborator Joanna Kambourian acknowledges extensive conversations to come up with the name EXTRA and EXTRA Zine in 2020. In this context, the term extra denotes, to a greater extent than usual; specifically, expanded participatory memory work [active archival work] towards artist-run archival art initiatives and their region-specific, ARI specific cultural heritage.
