This book observes inscription as method through a range of critical and creative presentations. My aim, to prospect the shore of M.R. James’ 1904 supernatural short story Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad as a suggestive yet speculative proposition on how to approach the production and reception of contemporary art writing, examining where meaning might take place and reasoning backwards. This book is developed from the first day of a two-day symposium at Whitechapel Gallery, London on 18 and 19 June 2009. Day one was hosted by myself and day two, Performing/Knowing, hosted by Gavin Butt. Article Press is a research project of Birmingham City University.
