Fillip is a Vancouver-based publishing organization formed in 2004 to expand spaces for critical discussions on contemporary art. Through a magazine and publications programme, Fillip sets out to provide platforms for examining the relationship between art and society. Its methods of discourse are familiar: long form essays, interviews, exhibition reviews, critical anthologies, artist projects, and talks. While these modes of address are neither new nor neutral, Fillip consistently strives to interrogate the spaces it inhabits, attempting to build conversations from a position of criticality.
