***NEW***artist opportunity***

this is from a good friend in san francisco, a past sndt participant, peep this:

Bullfight Review, a literary magazine, is looking for art (preferably) in series, for publication in issue #2, due out early next year.

If you have something you'd like to submit, send it our way. The magazine, about 130 pages, has a matte color cover, and black and white inside pages.

The web version of the magazine, and information on submitting art for the print version, can be found at:

***NEW***artist opportunity***

this is from an old friend who's now out in baltimore, check it out:

d r a f t i n g
"now entering our 5th assemblage"

basically it'll be something
perhaps akin to duchamp's box
or neil diamond's box set
hopefully between somewhere--there is no one aesthetic other than the aesthetic, or if you d prefer, all aesthetics point to one aesthetic so, as ivan says, 'all is permitted'

anything may be submitted
cd's. lp's. visual works. writing. math. pictures. money.
but please keep in mind that i'm gonna be mailing them out 'on my own dime', so postage/weight/should be considered, otherwise only people in my vicinity will be able to have their very own artistic sisyphus boulder

it works this way; send 10 submissions multiple 'one of a kind' or micro-produced and then after 10 submissions have been received, an issue appears i'd even take pop tsongas

realize that it 'taint precious so if your submission makes great wrapping paper, it may be used as such, but please, take it easy, this should be enjoyable

ideally, then, a month or two passes and a 'release' 'launch' or, better yet, brunch will be scheduled somewhere and we'll have a thing (the switch from the first person singular, to first plural marks my good intentions) though, thus far, brunch, release or launch have yet to happen

either email questions kevin.thurston@gmail.com
or mail your bundle of joy, or, indeed, a question to

be interested in submitting something to them.

below is what they’re looking for…

We'd like to thank everybody for coming out and making this event fabulous. So many people getting to meet each other, great energy, interesting art, and bangin music, it made us so happy.

Thanks to all the artists, musicians, dj's , kind souls/volunteers, and the couple hundred people who came out to support collaborations. We give props to the artists who took on a residency in the space to create their artwork for the show.

thanks also to all those who have listed us and continue to list or write up our events:
newsday ny, flavorpill ny, time out ny, ny press, DKS douglas kelley list, nonsense nyc, beyond events, instantcoffee canada

This show explored what happens when two (or more) people from different disciplines or different ways of working interact on a shared idea. We want to explore how their individual methods correspond and clash, cross-fertilize, provoke, or self-destruct, and how the working process affects what physically comes out of that collaboration.

The collaborative art effort does not necessarily have to revere the tagteam as magical/wonderful/larger than a single person, but we’re excited by it as a different way of working, a way of letting go of your own working methods, and as a challenge.

This was our first experiment with a residency program, and we hope to continue with it...
