Call For Artist: Stillpoint Magazine

Stillpoint Magazine
May 24, 2022

Stillpoint Magazine seeks an artist to take part in a collaboration with poet henry 7. reneau, jr., the results of which are to be featured in our next Open Access Issue, due out in August.

The selected artist will be introduced to henry remotely by Stillpoint Magazine, and the pair will be given a six week period to develop a poem and a visual work for publication in Issue 011. The collaborative process will be framed by the guiding issue concept, which will be provided to the collaborators upon introduction. The degree to which the poet and artist share the process will be up to the collaborators themselves, but the outcome must include a text and a visual work which can be displayed within Stillpoint Magazine‘s “pairing” structure. The collaborators will receive editorial and curatorial support as appropriate.

We recommend familiarizing yourself with henry’s previous work before applying for this opportunity. You can find examples herehere, and here.

You can apply with a sample of recent work in the medium(s) you would intend to use in the process, along with a brief statement about your practice or relevant experience. We will consider artists who work in mediums applicable to digital presentation. Send to people@stillpointmag.org with the subject line “Collab Artist” followed by your name.

Honorarium: $350 (USD)
Deadline for applications: Monday 6 June

Stillpoint Magazine‘s series of collaborations began with Dimitra Ioannou and Andrea Garcia Vasquez in Issue 010: JUDGE. You can view the results of their time working together here.
