Call for Submissions DUE March 30, 2014
Seeking submissions for our inaugural issue that will be published in April, 2014. This first issue of SEAJ will focus on socially engaged artists and projects in Baltimore.
SEAJ will highlight:
Art made in community (however you may define it)
Art work made in collaboration
Art work that initiates a dialog
Art work that has an element of social justice at its core
Art projects that engage the public
Art projects that are outside the confines of an institution
Art projects whose goal is transformation (social and otherwise)
SEAJ is searching for submissions from artists, activists, writers, curators, reviewers and everyone in between.
Submissions must be by or about Baltimore based artists, curators, or projects. Submissions may represent one of a variety of approaches, including but not limited to:
A scholarly or pseudo-scholarly investigation or review of a socially engaged art work or process
Photos or other documentation of socially engaged artwork made in the last two years that includes a short (100 max) description (please provide the date).
Video and audio work made in the last two years.
A fiction or nonfiction written submission related to socially engaged art work.
As a socially engaged artist:
How do you define your practice?
How would you compare community art to socially engaged art? (Or is there a need to make comparisons?)
What does your art practice mean in the context of “the contemporary art world?”
Examinations of the questions above are a few of the many subjects we seek to explore.
Please limit written submissions to 5,000 words.
Please send your submissions by midnight EST on March 30, 2014 to firstname.lastname@example.org
