Island Island EOIDates: EOI due 8th October 2018
We are delighted to launch Island Island, a new online arts platform that presents a watersmeet of arts and writing within a discursive digital landscape. Contribute by submitting an EOI by 8th October.
In response to an ever-expanding ocean of digital content, Island Island aims to foster critical engagement with contemporary visual culture, across borders.
The platform’s title provides a malleable thematic framework for content that addresses the complex dualism of real and virtual spaces. As a tautology Island Island intends to prompt an interrogation of such dichotomies; the real and the virtual, past and present, truth and fiction, artifice and actuality.
Island Island is edited by artist David Attwood and produced by Bus Projects. Operating as an important addition to its core gallery-based program of exhibitions, Island Island furthers Bus Projects’ commitment to supporting the critical, conceptual and interdisciplinary practices of Australian artists and writers.
Retaining Bus Projects’ commitment to being open and accessible, we are now welcoming expressions of interest for new textual works for presentation on Island Island from October 2018 - June 2019. Fees of $250 will be paid for text up to 1000 words.
Island Island’s discursive programming seeks practitioner-led submissions that address contemporary issues as they relate to art, place and visual culture. Island Island welcomes all forms of written work, including essay, interview, criticism, fiction or other.
