Young Space invites submissions of contemporary visual art for an elevated, independent print + online magazine launching Summer 2020. In keeping with the global and communal spirit of Young Space, this new project positions contemporary visual art in dialogue with design, architecture, photography, travel, and more — in short, activities and ideas that “fit nicely” with visual art. This exciting new collaborative project features work from global artists and creatives who seek, facilitate and encourage connection through their practices, projects, and communities. This will be a BRAND NEW international project, branching out from yngspc, with an aim to open up to a variety of contributions and curated projects in future. A section of the magazine is devoted to a juried open call, for which selected work will receive a 1- or 2-page spread (determined by the editors) comprised of images of your work accompanied by brief informational text. The publication will be announced and promoted publicly in spring and released in summer! If you have any specific questions about the publication before applying, please email Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Please complete both Step 1 and Step 2 below. Your submission will not be considered until both steps have been completed.
Send any questions or concerns you may have via email to email@example.com. All correspondence will be through email only. If you encounter any issues with this form or any other part of the submission process, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
As a thank you for your time and support, all artists who apply will receive a digital copy of the magazine, whether or not the work is selected for publication.
All artists in all career stages at least 18 years of age are eligible to submit work for consideration. All mediums are welcome, including but not limited to: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, ceramics, digital, video, textile, installation, etc. Contemporary art that employs materials or processes associated with craft, trades, design, photography, or other contemporary media are particularly encouraged.
