Part of INCITE Journal: Sports, this series of art exhibitions, film programs, discussions, commissioned projects, and other events takes place in galleries, cinemas, sports bars, bookstores, and on rooftops.
The first volume of its kind, this double issue examines the intersections of sports, performance, popular culture, and experimental media. Features 41 contributors including artists, writers, critics, scholars, historians, and athletes.
