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.

Sup­port from Prin­ted Matter

  • $1,500 fee to artist
  • Print­ing and design costs paid (within pro­ject budget)
  • Optional access to a designer, who will aid as needed in ready­ing pub­lic­a­tion for print

NEW MATERIAL AT THE EVA HOTEL
1506 COLLINS AVE MIAMI BEACH
December 5-8, 2013

During Art Basel and located two doors down from AQUA, the New Material Art Fair Miami premiers this December 2013

The focus of NEW MATERIAL is to expose brave departures in the practices of established and mid-career artists and galleries; particularly bodies of work unfettered by trends, and to date untested in the commercial realm.

NEW MATERIAL is the most recent addition to the satellite fairs concurrent with Art Basel, premiering this December 2013 at the recently renovated, 30-room boutique Eva Hotel.

Located two doors from the Aqua Art Fair, NEW MATERIAL will occupy the entire hotel, showcasing artists and galleries engaged in our premise.
