CALL FOR ARTIST
Call opened May 2022
Stillpoint Magazine seeks an artist to take part in a collaboration with poet henry 7. reneau, jr., the results of which are to be featured in our next Open Access Issue, due out in August.
The selected artist will be introduced to henry remotely by Stillpoint Magazine, and the pair will be given a six week period to develop a poem and a visual work for publication in Issue 011. The collaborative process will be framed by the guiding issue concept, which will be provided to the collaborators upon introduction. The degree to which the poet and artist share the process will be up to the collaborators themselves, but the outcome must include a text and a visual work which can be displayed within Stillpoint Magazine‘s “pairing” structure. The collaborators will receive editorial and curatorial support as appropriate.
You can apply with a sample of recent work in the medium(s) you would intend to use in the process, along with a brief statement about your practice or relevant experience. We will consider artists who work in mediums applicable to digital presentation. Send to email@example.com with the subject line “Collab Artist” followed by your name.
Honorarium: $350 (USD)
Deadline for applications: Monday 6 June
Stillpoint Magazine welcomes submissions of visual artworks to be considered for publication on a rolling basis.
We publish photography, video, digital media, animation, performance, and outputs from projects which work across these mediums. Please read our previous issues for a general understanding of the types of work we curate. You can view previous video works featured in Stillpoint Magazine here, and examples of how we have featured performance work here.
We do not, in general, accept documentation of installed artworks, sculptures, or exhibitions. However, if you feel your documentation stands alone as a new rendering of the work, you can submit with a brief description explaining how placement within a digital context would be appropriate.
All artworks featured in the public issues of Stillpoint Magazine are placed alongside the work of a writer. This pairing structure invites a dialogue between two independently produced works; the text does not respond directly to the artwork and vice versa.
You can submit by sending a selection of images or a link to a video, along with a brief description of the work (up to 350 words), to art director Kate Holford via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stillpoint Magazine welcomes submissions of texts to be considered for publication on a rolling basis.
We publish fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction; as well as essays in the areas of critical theory, psychoanalytic theory, and social critique. Please refer to the Stillpoint Magazine Style Guidelines and our previous issues for a clear understanding of the type of essays we publish.
You can submit by sending an abstract or complete text to Stillpoint Magazine‘s editor-in-chief Anne Marie Wirth Cauchon via email@example.com.
