Call for Entry: Southwest Contemporary Vol. 5 — Collectivity + Collaboration.




Southwest Contemporary Vol. 5 — Collectivity + Collaboration.

Guest juror: Darren Jones, U.S. editor-at-large for New Art Examiner and a frequent contributor to Artforum.

Deadline: December 10, 2021, 11:59 pm MT.

Published: March 2022.

Submission Fee: $15.

In SWC’s Spring-Summer 2022 issue, we will look at collectivity and collaboration in art throughout the Southwest, encompassing artists collaborating with other artists, interdisciplinary teams, and artists who work closely with communities, landscapes, materials, or media.

Collectives, collaborations, couples—artistic practice can be a team effort. The worlds of dance, theater, music, and film offer a paradigm of collaborative production with many players in different roles. Established artist studios employ teams of assistants, while young artists band together as collectives and reject hierarchy.

Themes that may come up in collaboration span utopianism, individualism, shared identities, new modes of creation, social structures, and more. In this issue, we will explore the benefits and pitfalls of working together toward common goals.

Who should apply

SWC invites artist collectives, artist couples, performing arts companies, artists involved with interdisciplinary teams, artists with collaborative projects, artists who collaborate with other artists, artists who collaborate with communities, environment, or material to submit work in any media or discipline related to the theme “Collectivity + Collaboration.”

Artists are encouraged to think broadly about the concepts of collaborative and collective modes of work.


Artists (18+), collectives, and organizations residing and working in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Northern Mexico, Texas, or Utah.

Juror: Darren Jones

This call will be juried by Darren Jones, an art critic, editor, and educator.

Jones is a Scottish-American art critic based in Fire Island Pines, New York and Key West, Florida. He is the U.S. editor-at-large for New Art Examiner and a frequent contributor to Artforum.

GLUE - New Curator Platform




Folkestone Fringe announces the launch of a new curatorial platform, GLUE. Created in response to a year of cancelled degree shows, inaccessible studios and cuts to staff and budgets. GLUE tackles reports of dwindling opportunities for art students and facilitates exhibitions alongside the international Creative Folkestone Triennial.

GLUE launches with an open call running from 1st June - 1st July 2021. The open call welcomes submissions from artists, curators or collectives who are final year students, recent graduates and postgraduate students from UK art schools or alternative programmes.

We're seeking artists, curators and collectives who are energetic and entrepreneurial. This open call is for people who may have missed out on the catapult moments that degree shows can provide, and are looking to create opportunities that define their futures.

Part of the Folkestone Fringe Triennial programme, the commissions are for two separate contemporary exhibitions in Folkestone, the first taking place throughout September and the second taking place throughout October. Capitalising on the energy of the Creative Folkestone Triennial, GLUE requires proposals that are innovative and ambitious. We will be selecting two proposals for these opportunities.
