Great Ode is a new publication in the form of an Artist’s Book. The book will feature a variety of works which reflect upon changing perceptions of contemporary society and how we artists are affected by its processes, requirements, its fast-moving cycles and the structure.
Great Ode is seeking contributions that are both experimental and subversive, at times satirical, anarchic, or even hopeful. This isn’t to be implied in one work, but in the final book length collection of varied artworks, visual explorations, essays, notes, criticisms, proposals for alternative living and photographs (by different artists and creators).
The book will be predominantly visually based with strong emphasis on visual content–
Artists submit artworks in the forms above which strongly articulate and illustrate their concerns with contemporary society, or their hopes for alternative living and power/political structures.
We are open in the form of the work, as long as it is able to be printed / reproduced in a 2D format in the final book. Videos will be welcome for the website when it is launched or the corresponding blog.
Deadline: October 31st
