The Outcome Is Certain is the first major monograph tracing Gothe-Snape’s at once rigorous, ambitious, intuitive and poetic work. Co-published by Perimeter Editions with Monash University Museum of Art to coincide with her major survey exhibition of the same title, the book features newly commissioned texts by the likes of Julie Ewington, Anneke Jaspers, Erik Jensen, Jenn Joy and Gemma Weston, as well as showcasing a sprawling collection of rarely seen drawings, notations and scores, which offer insights into the artist’s processes and underpinnings. Both active and reflective in its scope, The Outcome Is Certain gives pause to an oeuvre that is conceptually rich, emotionally intelligent and inherently alive.

Available for purchase from The Commercial. $50 (book) + $20 (express post within Australia).
