Prin­ted Mat­ter Calls for Sub­mis­sions for a New Emer­ging Artists Pub­lic­a­tion Series

Five selec­ted artists will work with the sup­port of Prin­ted Mat­ter and a ded­ic­ated designer to real­ize indi­vidual projects…

Sub­mis­sions are open to emer­ging artists whose prac­tice has demon­strated a com­mit­ment to exper­i­ment­a­tion within the artists‹ book medium in unusual and excit­ing ways.

Broadly speak­ing, Prin­ted Mat­ter is inter­ested in pub­lic­a­tions that have been con­ceived as art­works in their own right, rather than books that doc­u­ment work cre­ated in another medium. Pro­pos­als should not be a con­ven­tional cata­log of art­works, tra­di­tional artists‹ mono­graph, chap­book, or other straight­for­ward works of fic­tion, non-​​fiction or poetry, as these fall out­side our scope.

Sub­mit­ted pro­pos­als will be reviewed by a com­mit­tee made up of Tauba Auerbach (Artist), David Senior (Bib­li­o­grapher, MoMA Lib­rary), Gar­rick Gott(Con­sult­ing Design Dir­ector, Prin­ted Mat­ter) and James Jen­kin (Exec­ut­ive Dir­ector, Prin­ted Matter).

All items should be sent as attach­ments in a single email to submissions{at}printedmatter.org, with the sub­ject line EMER­GINGARTISTS_[YOUR NAME]. Emails should not exceed 10 MB.

Unfor­tu­nately, due to the expec­ted volume of sub­mis­sions, we will not be able to acknow­ledge the receipt of applic­a­tions, and will only be able to notify selec­ted applicants.

Timeline
All book pro­pos­als must be sent by Monday, August 10, 2013. Selec­ted applic­ants will be noti­fied by Septem­ber 10, 2013 with the expect­a­tion that work on the first two sched­uled pro­jects will com­mence in the fol­low­ing weeks. The five books in the series will be pub­lished over the course of a year.
