TBC Artists' Collective has announced an open call for submissions to its March 2011 12-Pages project. Applicants are asked to submit a new work under the theme of PINPOINT INTROSPECTIVE, guest-edited by Elizabeth Oniri.
All responses should be sent to email@example.com by midnight, 31 March 2011 to be considered for inclusion within the April online issue of 12-Pages.
"To understand ourselves as humans, artists and global citizens we are sometimes required to take a look at our inner selves. This self-examination is essential with regards to our mental health, helping us to better understand how and what we produce not just as artists, designers and wordsmiths but also as humans.
For some years I have worked in a museum, which has had a strong impact on the way I research. I have come to realise that learning from the past can sometimes help us to understand the future, and why we set certain standards within society. Thus, for this issue of 12-Pages, I would like to ask contributors to use the inspiration gleaned from a pinpoint introspective, to create new work."
