Connective Tissues argues for the significance of the publication within artistic practices while experimenting with exhibiting an institutionally invisible medium.

Publications have long been important sites of discourse integral to the formation of artistic communities and their diverse practices. Despite this rich history, the medium has rarely been privileged as a serious art form. While there have been recent efforts to evaluate publications as art objects by art historians and curators alike, this trend has yet to be widely adopted by arts institutions, leaving questions around the treatment and display of these printed materials unresolved.
