Description

Southwest Contemporary Vol. 5: Collectivity + Collaboration.

Guest juror: Darren Jones, U.S. editor-at-large for New Art Examiner and a frequent contributor to Artforum.

Deadline: December 10, 2021, 11:59 pm MT.

Published: March 2022.

Submission Fee: $15.

In SWC’s Spring-Summer 2022 issue, we will look at collectivity and collaboration in art throughout the Southwest, encompassing artists collaborating with other artists, interdisciplinary teams, and artists who work closely with communities, landscapes, materials, or media.

Collectives, collaborations, couples—artistic practice can be a team effort. The worlds of dance, theater, music, and film offer a paradigm of collaborative production with many players in different roles. Established artist studios employ teams of assistants, while young artists band together as collectives and reject hierarchy.

Themes that may come up in collaboration span utopianism, individualism, shared identities, new modes of creation, social structures, and more. In this issue, we will explore the benefits and pitfalls of working together toward common goals.
