Call for Contributions

The urgent need for new institutional imaginaries preceded MARCH, and these timelines are much longer than our present pandemic and protest movements. This fall, we aim to look above and beyond our current situations to consider the structural issues already (and continuing) to be at play as we consider propositions for the future in ideas, actions and form. Appropriately, our inaugural print edition will occupy the first issue of October in its form and purview. In response to October’s originally stated mission to propose “radical departures articulating the historical movement which enclosed them,” this print edition and corresponding online content will consider what the urgencies and possible expanded forms of art criticism at present may be.

We invite proposals for new or unpublished essays of approximately 2,500 words to be considered for publication. You are welcome to send us pitches and/or drafts (including experimental writing and adaptive new forms) at any time, but the final drafts to be considered for print (and priority consideration for online publishing) will be due July 15.
