The latest issue of Editions was inspired by the preponderance of “local” movements—particularly in food and craft culture. We so often hear this heart-warming, feel good idea that local is somehow better, more sustainable—and we’re not arguing. We do love a good organic, locally grown and prepared kale smoothie. But it made us wonder how the idea of “local” fit into the contemporary art world—a “world” so commonly prefaced with the epithet “global.”
