Information for works to be featured in the next issue of Garland magazine due out in September.
Relative to many other forms of creative expression, craft is profoundly local, drawing on materials at hand as well as the techniques passed down through generations. While many other cultural products can circulate easily around the world, especially in digital form, the handmade is best served close to its origin. This means that our encounter with it often entails travel, sometimes even pilgrimage, to the place of production, whether a legendary urban atelier or a seemingly timeless village workshop.
This online exhibition invites artists to submit work that has been somehow inspired by such a distant encounter.
You are invited to submit two images: one of the work and one of a distant encounter, which can act as an inspiration, reference or contrast.
Images should be at least 1200 pixels wide. Please put caption details as EXIF information or as the file name. Images need to be uploaded to the following address: https://www.dropbox.com/request/JwAPbbqFiflbpGII8fBW
** Images without captions cannot be accepted. **
You are also invited to upload an audio greeting to accompany the images (e.g., “My name is … and come from…”).
The deadline for this information is 17 August 2019.
