Collage of the Month
Deadline: n/a | City: San Francisco | Country: United States | Robyn Mallery
As a new and independent magazine, we are here to highlight talented and thought-provoking artists that are not afraid to push the boundaries of what is socially acceptable. We are specifically keeping our eyes out for artists that cross lines that have been set by aristocratic elites and works that force us to ask again questions that we thought we had answered long ago. What is art? Who gets to decide what art is? Who is allowed to make it?
An important part of collage work is how it tells stories in a torn and fractured way that no other art form can quite touch. It can be an artist's way of sorting thoughts and memories, a way of combining them, and a way of connecting them to new ideas and philosophies. We look for art that is beautiful, painful, emotion-filled, gory, devastating, aesthetic, clever, and political. Above all, it is crucial that the message behind the work is significant and purposeful.
This call is ONLY for collage and collage-like mixed media art.
Artist of the Month will begin in June 2023, coinciding with the first issue of Photosynthesis Magazine. The arist of the month will be reached out to personally by staff upon consideration. You may not hear back if your work has not been chosen. This is a rolling submission form, meaning there is no deadline and artists will be reviewed once a month and either accepted or declined before the next wave of artists. It is of no cost to the artist and it includes free permanent recognition on both our Instagram and our website*.
You are required to include an Instagram handle and portfolios should showcase 75% or more collage art. Instagram accounts that are mainly selfies, photography, family photos, or non-collage mediums of artwork will be dismissed at this time. Portfolios with other types of artwork are accepted, so long as there is evidence that the artist is primarily a collage artist at the time of submission.
*Chosen artists will be displayed perpetually unless the artist requests a removal. Photosynthesis Magazine reserves the right to remove any artist at their sole descretion.
