The webzine prompts, and engages in, topical debates to critically reflect upon the artistic and curatorial practice represented across the Axis website. The webzine features dynamic content from new and established writers seeking to inspire, inform, profile, critique, review and debate contemporary art.
We are keen to commission contributions which visually, vocally and creatively respond to the contemporary art scene and current debates from both established and emerging writers. For details on contributing see the call for submissions page.

- a CV or biography.
- examples of previously published articles. This is not essential; we do consider contributions from previously unpublished writers.

Banner Repeater is asking for submissions of works that emanate from artistic practice, as individuals or collectives, as well as other trans-disciplinary working arrangements, for a group exhibition to be held at Banner Repeater in June – August that considers the following:
“When the structure that something takes influences the shape the content takes, and also the ways that people might approach that content and use it, and likewise, the content begins to affect the structure as well” (1), we can begin to understand the binding between humans and technology as a co-evolution.
Of particular interest are new relations that come of issues regarding copyright, patents, trademarks, and the consequences of trade secrets, brought to the fore by digital media.
“Intellectual property rights, at least for patents and copyrights, may be considered rights in ideal objects. Patents can be obtained only for “practical” applications of ideas, but not for more abstract or theoretical ideas. Philosophical, mathematical or scientific truths cannot be protected under current law on the grounds that commerce and social intercourse would grind to a halt were every new phrase, philosophical truth, and the like, considered the exclusive property of its creator.
But the distinction between creation and discovery is not clear-cut or rigorous. Nor is it clear why such a distinction, even if clear, is ethically relevant in defining property rights. No one creates matter; they just manipulate and grapple with it according to physical laws. In this sense, no one really creates anything. They merely rearrange matter into new arrangements and patterns. An engineer who invents a new mousetrap has rearranged existing parts to provide a function not previously performed. Others who learn of this new arrangement can now also make an improved mousetrap. Yet the mousetrap merely follows laws of nature. The inventor did not invent the matter out of which the mousetrap is made, nor the facts and laws exploited to make it work.”
For this exhibition Banner Repeater is interested in works that consider how content might be shaped by structural form and vice versa, that appropriate objects, and structures beyond the object, that challenge or critique all, or any of the above ideas, that might address:
the means of production,
and systems of distribution,
legal structures and new issues of copyright,
social media and the production of social relations,
structures of the gallery, art market, and beyond….
It is worth noting that whilst often these affects are most visible through digital technologies, older technologies may also be of interest here.
Please send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org with OPEN SUBMISSION in the header by the 31st May.
Successful submissions will be notified by 5th June, and must be able to deliver work to Banner Repeater (where appropriate) on 10th – 12th June, ready for opening on the 14th June.
The open submission fee is £10 (to cover administration costs)–please via the Banner Repeater site link here.

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
— John Lennon

Before the 1st VIP Online Art Fair ever opened, I alerted my blog readers in articles to attend. The opening hour of day of the very first VIP Online Art Fair had so many trying to access the art fair site that there were issues. I wrote a review of the 2nd VIP Art Fair, sharing screenshots of some of my favorite artworks. Now, it’s opening day of the 3rd VIP Contemporary Art Fair.
Amazingly, some artists have asked me, somewhat puzzled, why they would want to attend this art fair. To look at art of course! Don’t you love art? You don’t have to fly to Miami or New York City or Italy or London to research the art scene and art galleries, and to make connections with curators–you can do it at the online fair. No, it doesn’t replace seeing real art in a gallery or museum, but there are lots of benefits to attending the fair. Give it a try.

From the WordPress blog Cabinet Exhibition an open call to a group show that will present the work of several international emerging artists. Based on the concept of the early modern ‘Cabinets of Curiosities’, this exhibition draws together painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, video and other more contemporary practices, all arranged in an unconventional display. The result is a sort of arrhythmic mosaic intended to present a panoramic view of art production today.
This exhibition aims to be an immersive experience for the curious visitor who will face an unorthodox eclectic selection of artworks, from street art brought into the gallery to paintings on ham and visual soundscapes, among others. The dialogue between the artworks displayed will favour new analogies and comparisons, leading the visitors to make fresh associations and come out with new ideas.
The exhibition will take place at the Islington Arts Factory in London from the 14th-21st September 2012. http://www.islingtonartsfactory.org/
