Story and Alt Space: 2 That Combine Art Magazine + Art Gallery + Art Shop

Both Story and Alt Space present interesting concepts based on the combination of magazine, shop and art gallery–perhaps each coming from a different direct.

While Story changes their retail space every 4-6 weeks like an art gallery to focus on a new theme, Alt Space began as a magazine that expanded into a gallery and shop in Brooklyn. These may seem like subtle differences, yet I think visual artists might examine both to stimulate their thinking for new ways to present their work.

Many artists set up a website that acts as an archive for images of their work. Perhaps it’s time to dust things off and rethink such a presentation, making it more dynamic. Regular changes will result in news for their blog, and social media activity, creating plenty to Tweet about and share on other platforms and bringing more visitors to the artist’s website.

They began as a magazine called Alt Citizen. ALT CITIZEN welcomes submissions of any and all content that expands the imagination and creative energy. They’re a community of writers, photographers, thinkers. Please send all music, musings, photos, videos, collages, art and any other thing that you would like considered –Submission details here.

Alt Citizen recently opened a gallery and shop in Brooklyn called Alt Space.  They also have a new online store! Featuring some of their favorite artists and designers.

Alt Space has been labeled Revivers of DIY, “where art and fashion seamlessly collide” by Bullett Magazine. They host monthly exhibitions and events to a growing collective of local creatives and consumers alike. Curators include Alt Citizen Editor-in-Chief Nasa Hadizadeh, Style artist Phil Gomez, and Artist Grace Miceli.

Artwork from current and past exhibitions, fashion, and accessories are personally selected by AltSpace curators for the shops. Most items are artist made, limited, and/or exclusive to Alt Space. Stay updated on Alt Space by following on Twitter: @altspacebrooklyn.

Artists Submit to Sight Unseen Magazine and Online Shop

We’ve added these to our extensive list of art magazines and blogs, and our list of online sales sites

Sight Unseen wants to publish professional designer’s, photographer’s, or artist’s work created to keep rather than sell, including homemade objects or gifts for loved ones for the magazine’s ARTISTS’ PROOF section. If you have an interesting home interior with lots of personality, decorated with your possessions, collections, or artworks, submit photos for the Sight Unseen At Home With section or the INVENTORY section for your interesting collections or other group of objects that says something about your creative process, and you’d like to visually catalog it.  If you have a book, magazine, or exhibition you’d like Sight Unseen to excerpt, or If you own or are working with a factory on a project, and have professional or near-professional photos submit them to Sight Unseen. If you’d like to invite Sight Unseen to visit your factory or studio–if your studio is visually intriguing, full of special details, and can communicate something about your creative process in photographs. For STUDIO VISIT: TECHNIQUE, let Sight Unseen know about a unique physical or conceptual technique in your work that you can trace throughout several of your projects. If you’ve created something with a riveting enough backstory or production process to hold a few hundred words for the Sight Unseen to THE MAKING OF section.  If you can look out the window of your studio and see something that’s spectacular, inspiring, or just pointedly mundane Sight Unseen may be interested in photos for their THE VIEW FROM HERE section.

Sight Unseen is also interested in working with artists who would like to put together a custom creative project that can be presented digitally for sole publication on Sight Unseen and artists’  sketchbooks — or h series of sketches for a specific project — that go beyond the obvious. For the WHERE THEY’VE BEEN section, Sight Unseen is looking for images and projects creatively inspired by a trip or a location and documented it by way of photographs, drawings, etc.

How to Submit
Sight Unseen is always on the lookout for interesting people and subjects to feature. We are open to anyone working in a creative field. To submit your work, please send low-res jpegs or a link to your website or portfolio to submissions [at] sightunseen [dot] com. We cannot respond to every submission we receive. If we are interested in creating a feature around your work, we will be in touch!
