Submissions

Sculptorvox is currently looking for contributions for its first print edition on the title and theme ‘Geometry of Nothing’. As the inaugural volume in a series exploring a variety of concepts around contemporary sculptural practice, ‘Geometry of Nothing’ looks to explore some of the fundamental aspects of ideation, process, spacial-relationships, interaction. The idea that the creative process is ex nihilo – something from nothing – speaks to the origins, drives and outcomes generated by the artists compulsion to create physical, tangible and even virtual objects, realms, realities and dialogues.

Accumulation, Lead Pencil Studio, 2008

We are seeking both written and photographic contributions that broadly and creatively interpret, discuss and respond to the theme by exploring associations, presenting stories and constructing narratives. Suggested topics may include, but are not limited to:

Negative space
Relational aesthetics
Socially engaged practice
Ideation
Interaction
Audience participation

Please read the guidelines prior to submission and send all submissions to editor@urbanfugitive.com

Closing date for submissions – 28th Feb 2017

Thank you for considering submitting work. Sculptorvox takes a ‘people first’ approach to artistic output turning the established ‘artwork first’ idea on its head, presenting compelling stories of the artists and intimate articles on the psychology and philosophy imbued in the process…asking what is it to create, derive a method, forge a path.

Ultimately the publication explores the mind, ideas, motivations, desires, passions, doubts, conflicts and underlying journey of the contemporary sculptural artist: presenting their voice and viewpoint, artworld expectations and attitudes, notions of success, career paths and new and alternative ideas. We will feature, from around the world, the personal viewpoints of a range of inspiring individuals (including but not limited to artists, gallery directors, curators and academics) through strong image and text based content.

Writers

We are looking for writers who take a literal and/or lateral approach to writing about sculptural practice in all its forms, identifying outlying topics or responding to a particular theme for a chosen volume.

We want writing that is acerbic, witty, irreverent, enlightening, challenging, leftfield, out-of-the-ordinary, unconventional.

We are looking for:
Articles
Profile or interview based features
Q&A – short or long
Stories

Please contact us with a brief idea for an article (approx 200 words) or an example of your work if a general expression of interest. Include a short statement about yourself including where you are based, why you would like to contribute to Sculptorvox and if you have been

We only feature original and unpublished work both in print and online.

Photographers

We are looking for photographers who set out to capture images with a fresh perspective, authenticity and focused narratives.

Portrait work should take the artist out of the gallery or studio space and show them in the places where they live and socialise, in line with our ‘people first’ approach.

Photojournalism and photo essays may take a freer view on the context and approach for a specific idea or series of images, We seek original and captivating photographic work, and prefer to feature previously unpublished imagery both in print and online.

We are looking for:
Photojournalism
Photo essays
