Verso is an online platform for contemporary artists, writers and curators to share their arts practice, knowledge and experiences (relevant to the visual arts) through publishing pieces of text. It is our mission to compile these records and share them with our community of followers in an accessible, resourceful and engaging format. We aim to represent a diverse range of practices and people. Verso is a curated site, which encourages innovative, experimental and more traditional writing practices and pieces. We aim to publish a ‘significant’ piece of writing each week.
Edwina Cooper, Alex Beckinsale and Christina Peek met at Adelaide Central School of Art in 2015. Since graduating they have continued their arts practices, exhibiting both nationally and internationally. Constantly interested in developing and maintaining links within the arts community and developing their own writing, they decided to create Verso.
In 2017 Verso was supported by the City of Burnside 'Local Artist Support Subsidy'
