Studio Operative

Studio Operative

Studio Operative (Peter Willis and Alice Lindsay) is a publishing studio focused on the possibilities of contemporary illustration and was founded by Alice Lindsay, Miriam Elgon and Peter Willis. Their main publication is Limner, a critical journal of illustration aimed to provide a platform for the exploration, critique and contextualisation of contemporary illustration.

The studio also acts as a physical space for discussion with seminars and lectures, as well as a content-led event to launch every Limner publication. This aims to promote wider conversations around subjects as well as a means of exhibiting illustration relevant to its context that is in some ways independent of the traditions of fine art.

Peter and Alice will collectively judge Self Initiated category.
