LIVD is an avant-garde art and design publication produced in the Pacific Northwest, dedicated to the intersection of art, design, culture and how these influence lived experience. Each volume is printed in a limited edition of 150. Created and edited by Meredith James (Artist, Designer, and Assistant Professor, Portland State University), the publication includes contributions from professional artists, designers and the wise – many of whom do not participate in the dominant mechanisms of culture production. LIVD pays hommage to the inspiring and idealistic efforts of the early twentieth century avant-garde, balancing the academic with the personal and experimental.
To extend the reach of the publication, podcasts are ongoing and touch upon the topics discussed in each volume of the printed publication. The Twitter feed and Facebook page keep pace with real-time issues and information. If you have access to a university library, you can view a digital pdf of each volume thanks to PDX Scholar.
