In the past, metropolis was the term used to designate a city. Many cities founded by ancient civilizations have been world metropolises of their times, mainly because of their large population and importance. Some ancient metropolises have made their way into the present and rank among the world’s continuously-inhabited spaces. This publication is like a travel journal from street corners around the world, a collection of stories related to art and its relationship to the metropolis. You may have lived in a city or traveled to one. You may have felt like dying in a city or wanted to leave. A metropolis may be a source of ecstasy or anxiety, and it affects artistic output. Even if you feel part of a metropolis, your imagination may fly to cities in other worlds. The enthusiasm can be literal or poetic.

Metropolises can be catalysts, sources of energy… With perseverance and adaptation, we learn new ways of expressing ourselves. This premier issue of Tunica explores the myriad relationships artists have with their cities. Their voice is in constant dialog with the metropolis. From this dynamic, our journey begins… To quote the words of the great Ezra Pound, “All great art is born of the metropolis.”
