Call for Writers - CANNED Magazine Issue 3 (sneaky preview for AA2A)


CANNED is seeking submissions!!!

For the third edition of CANNED to be featured in February 2012, we are looking for detailed responses to the role of public engagement in contemporary art and how it relates to collaboration, exchange and collective action specifically.

Whatever your take, perspective or style we welcome your submission. As always, we are looking for really unique perspectives delivered with eloquence, clarity and character.

For this edition of CANNED, we are looking to push the boundaries of discussion and debate as far as we can. It will be more extensive and have more exposure than ever before, being sold internationally in such places as BALTIC Centre for Contermporary Art, Globe Gallery, Vane Gallery, Aye-Aye Books and the Newbridge Space Gallery. We will circulate 1000 paper copies, plus we will provide coverage on the CANNED and The NewBridge Project websites and through Social Networking/on-line Arts channels.

CANNED is an unpaid opportunity but is an excellent chance for all artists, writers and cultural critics to gain exposure and have a voice. CANNED has previously had articles featuring everything from emerging shows in small towns to exclusive interviews with Christo and Mark Leckey.
