"OOF hopefully goes a little way towards laying all of that bare. Football and art have been intertwined for centuries, we're just going to try to unravel that a little bit."
Slapped on the front of issue four is An Unnecessary and Excessive Display of Celebration by Juno Calypso. There's more of her new football-inspired series inside, where art historian Ben Street tells us how the whole history of pink in art is written into the fleshy fabric of Juno's work. Eddy Frankel searches for the truth in the myth surrounding Arsenal’s 1992 North Bank Mural, while Mark Wallinger shares stories about the role of football in his life and work. Elsewhere, Rosemary Waugh checks out René Magritte's La Représentation and questions the validity of VAR's hyper-truthful version of events.
