> AREA SNEAKS: Call for Work
> The historical relationship between art and language has often
> occasioned lively and compelling work. AREA SNEAKS, a new print and
> online journal, seeks to touch the live wire where language and
> visual art meet.
> Gertrude Stein's Paris artist salon, Velemir Khlebnikov and
> Vladimir Tatlin's constructive collaboration, Bernadette Mayer and
> Vito Acconci's editorial partnership, Augusto de Campos's concrete
> engagement with Brazilian modernism and Mike Kelley's interest in
> systems of literary knowledge have each provided potential models
> of positive exchange between artists and writers. AREA SNEAKS hopes
> to maintain this dialogue by creating a fellowship of discourse
> within an open community of contemporary artists and writers.
> AREA SNEAKS seeks work drawn from the full range of visual and
> language arts. We are interested in placing artists and writers
> working in a variety of media and with a variety of materials into
> dialogue. Artist projects, poetry, historical papers, speculative
> essays on art and language, poetics statements, collaborations,
> imaginative theses, conceptual writing, photographic essays,
> performance documents, interviews with artists and writers,
> architectural critiques and film analyses are only a few of the
> types of work we will consider.
