AREA SNEAKS: Call for Work

AREA SNEAKS: Call for Work

The historical relationship between art and language has often
occasioned lively and compelling work. AREA SNEAKS, a new print and
online journal, seeks to touch the live wire where language and visual
art meet.

Gertrude Stein's Paris artist salon, Velemir Khlebnikov and Vladimir
Tatlin's constructive collaboration, Bernadette Mayer and Vito
Acconci's editorial partnership, Augusto de Campos's concrete
engagement with Brazilian modernism and Mike Kelley's interest in
systems of literary knowledge have each provided potential models of
positive exchange between artists and writers. AREA SNEAKS hopes to
maintain this dialogue by creating a fellowship of discourse within an
open community of contemporary artists and writers.

AREA SNEAKS seeks work drawn from the full range of visual and
language arts. We are interested in placing artists and writers
working in a variety of media and with a variety of materials into
dialogue. Artist projects, poetry, historical papers, speculative
essays on art and language, poetics statements, collaborations,
imaginative theses, conceptual writing, photographic essays,
performance documents, interviews with artists and writers,
architectural critiques and film analyses are only a few of the types
of work we will consider.

Submissions and proposals are accepted by email and post.
