Proximity is a lovingly produced magazine of art and culture, focusing predominantly on Chicago, while extending a wide reach to many other locales. Chicago has needed a well designed magazine like this one for a long time. It is being produced by Rachel and Ed Marzewski, who are responsible for several endeavors: Lumpen, Select Media, Version Fest, Co-Prosperity Sphere and many other publications, art spaces, and gatherings.

This issue is their first. The full title is, Proximity Number One: The Chicago Issue (Mapping and Reading Contemporary Culture in the City). It is packed with columns (one by Half Letter Pressers: Salem and Brett), interviews (one with Stephanie Smith, curator of Beyond Green), profiles of independently run art spaces, a map of Chicago's socially engaged art workers, feature article by Greg Sholette, and more.
