Inspired by connections to places and people, the magazine (online for now) focuses on pathways between contemporary art and place.

Originally co-founded in 2020 by curator and writer Kate Mothes and artist Vickie Vainionpää as a semi-annual print and online publication celebrating contemporary art and connection—ideas and practices that “fit nicely” within the realm of visual art, the first iteration of the project produced two print magazines in addition to online articles throughout the year.

Following exciting pathways of our own in new career directions and to far-flung destinations, Dovetail went into hibernation in late 2020. Now based in Scotland, Kate is currently working on the new Dovetail. Opportunities to contribute to the magazine can be found here. To say hello or submit a tip, please visit the contact page.
