IN my mind, one of the most fascinating topics for book artists is feminism. As a subject there are just so many myriad related issues and avenues to explore—and we all have some connection to the topic that we can examine from either our personal or professional lives. Here’s a call for entries that really has me intrigued. It is juried by three luminaries, two of whom I know and highly respect, Alicia Bailey and Helen Frederick.
Book artist, and art editor for So to Speak, the feminist publication sponsoring this call, Ceci Cole McInturff, is now accepting submissions for the 2013 All-Media Visual Art Competition “The Hybrid Book.”
From the call for entries: “The So to Speak 2013 visual art competition seeks entries in all media which the makers consider to represent – in any and all ways – today’s book experience, and which articulate issues of significance to women’s lives, voice, power, and equality in contemporary culture. Jurors Brigitte Reyes, Helen Frederick and Alicia Bailey welcome submissions in all media, including performance, digital and new media, photography and all 2D and 3D visual art forms, as well as sculptural book objects and artist’s books, whether or not incorporating text.”
