CIRCA Online is calling for short texts on contemporary visual-arts projects, exhibitions and performances taking place on the island of Ireland.
‘This Matters Now’ is an open and invited project expanding our current research into the relationship between art writing, art magazines and the present moment.
Respondents are invited to write on what intrigues, moves or disturbs in the particular exhibition or project they have chosen. We aim to open a new dynamic space for engaged writing around visual arts in Ireland. We are looking for texts of approximately 250 words, this word-count is flexible. Additional contextual information can be supplied by linking a press release or a project description.
A first series of 25 texts are being published by issues of five every two week on circaartmagazine.website between October and December 2016. A second series will be published in February-March 2017.
A fee of €40 / £33 will be paid for each text published (to be paid in December 2016 and April 2017).
You can send propositions and / or completed submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As the emphasis is on new writing, texts that have been published elsewhere will not be considered.
The first series is now closed.
Submissions for the second series will be accepted until 17 February 2017.
