THE LOST HISTORY OF CONCORD
Concord is now accepting submissions for its second publication and the first issue in a new ongoing series. Here at Concord we are working on creating an archive and in order to do so we must make sense of our past. We are issuing an open call to help us decipher fragments we have found and create a fictive history of Concord and its inhabitants.
This can take (just about) any form you’d like: poetry, essays, conceptual interventions into the structure of the publication, parables, datagraphics, maps, imagined artifacts, photographs, or sketches. Don’t limit yourself to textual submissions, but please keep in mind that your work needs to be reproducible and resizable to fit a roughly square page, and work in print. You need not be intimately involved with Concord, and in fact, we hope that some of you aren’t!
Here are the fragments we have found that we invite you to consider for your submission:
The launch of this publication will coincide with Concord’s show at the Verge Gallery in February at the University of Sydney in Australia with copies being sent to the show.
1. No more than one submission per artist or writer.
2. Submissions should not exceed roughly 5 pages in length when formatted for a standard 8 ½” x 11” page (especially pertinent for textual submissions). If you feel strongly about exceeding this limit, let us know. Exceptions can and will be made with prior approval.
3. Work must be reproducible and resizable to fit on a roughly square page. This is going to be a printed publication. The only exceptions would be flat reproducible material such as a CD or DVD.
4. Material must be received by DECEMBER 20th 2012 submitted either electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to:
1010 San Fernando Rd.
Los Angeles CA, 90065
Concord is a socially engaged art project with the goal of building and bridging community(s) through art and ideas. We function as a platform to promote culture where our dynamic projects act as research into community, site-specificity and institutional critique. We are interested in creating a self-reflexive art gallery and communal/public space
