Antenna::Signals open call for creative written works

Antenna::Signals ISSUE::002


REFLECTIONS ON EXILE :: displacement, migration, dissociation

Antenna is seeking submissions of short fiction, non-fiction, poetry or prose for inclusion in Antenna::Signals 002, a print publication to accompany Antenna’s quarterly, thematic “live arts magazine” event. Submissions should explore or feel connected in someway to the theme of “Reflections on Exile :: displacement, migration, dissociation”.

Each written piece must be 1500 words or fewer; we will accept up to 10 writings for inclusion. Each accepted submission will receive an honorarium of $50.

Conceived as a “live arts magazine,” Antenna::Signals is a new sort of variety show by the artists and writers of Antenna. Each “issue” of Antenna::Signals will feature a spread of 8 local artists, writers, musicians, scientists and scholars whose practices relate thematically. The live event will be accompanied by the release of a two-dimensional print version, with each magazine dropping during the live event.

Issue::002 will drop on July 12, 2016, 7-9pm.

Issue::002 of Antenna::Signals will occupy the liminal space between two exhibitions: June 2016, Controls and Counter Reactions, curated by Carl Joe Williams for Blights Out; and July 2016, featuring Antenna 2015 Open Call winner Yoshie Sakai. Blights Out’s preoccupations with the socio-political schisms ripped by Katrina’s displacement and Sakai’s hallucinatory reflections on the position of Asian American women within a brand-oriented society bookend a program themed around considerations of displacement, migration, and dissociation.
