Living Histories

Call for Artists: Southwest Contemporary Vol. 9 — Living Histories

Southwest Contemporary invites artists throughout the Southwest to submit work to be included in Southwest Contemporary’s Spring-Summer 2024 issue, which will explore the theme “Living Histories.”

Some histories are cast in bronze, frozen in time, and memorialized for posterity. Some are transmitted through spoken stories, living on in the memories of those who hear them.

This issue of Southwest Contemporary will delve into the past to reveal the workings of the present. What underground vaults, under-told stories, and obscured narratives can we bring to light? Who are the record keepers, the archivists, the knowledge holders? How have histories been kept and cherished, or suppressed and erased? What do we commemorate, what do we forget?
