Reminder for students: Triple Canopy call for proposals due Feb. 11

January 28, 2013

Dear friends,

Triple Canopy recently announced its fourth annual *call for proposals from
artists and writers*, *due February 11*. Complete details are available
online here:

Please distribute to fellow faculty and students, as you see fit. More
information is below.

Many thanks for your time and consideration.

Peter J. Russo

Director, Triple Canopy
155 Freeman Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222-5471
Office: (347) 529-5182
Mobile: (240) 472-7260


*Expanding publication:<>
*Triple Canopy’s 2013 call for
(December 11, 2012) Triple Canopy has for the past five years worked to
present compelling work online in ways that make innovative use of the Web.
In this time, we’ve also been charting an *expanded field of publication*:
creating print objects and public programs that exist in dialogue with our
online content, drawing on the history of print culture while also acting
as a hub for exploration of emerging forms of technology and the public
spaces constituted around them.

For our fourth annual call for proposals we wish to intensify our work in a
variety of offline forms of print publication and public programming. We
are interested in forging connections between books, manuscripts, lectures,
performances, exhibitions, among other forms, and our online publishing
practice. We believe that a publishing model that engages both real-world
and Web-based audiences can prompt artists and writers to develop work that
is deeply considered and formally inventive.

For our 2013 call, we invite artists and writers to submit proposals for
projects that may not find their primary realization on the Web, but which
may ultimately be published in some form in Triple Canopy’s online
magazine. The following list, by no means exhaustive, enumerates some of
the initial forms such projects might take:

– Print broadsheet or pamphlet
– Print poster
– Book or e-book
– Public lecture or seminar
– Performance
– Reading
– Screening
– Exhibition or installation

Triple Canopy is looking for artists and writers with coherent proposals
for projects that can be realized in one year or less. We are, as ever, in
search of work that makes innovative, persuasive use of its own form and
medium. While past publication or experience is not a prerequisite,
successful applicants will demonstrate fluency in the field in which they
wish to publish. Triple Canopy prioritizes work by emerging artists and
writers working in the fields of visual art and literature, broadly
defined; we appreciate work that takes into account current discussions and
debates but is not bound by them, work that is carefully crafted but not
fixated on form.

Commission recipients receive:

– Three to six months of artistic, editorial, and technical support
– $300 honorarium
– Opportunity for inclusion in our annual print publication, *Invalid
Format: An Anthology of Triple Canopy*
– Opportunity to use Triple Canopy’s space at 155 Freeman for a
performance or other public event
– Coordination and production of any print publication or live event
– Archiving of materials and long-term maintenance of any online version
of the project by technical staff

Application guidelines

*Required materials for initial application*
Please fill out our online form <> to
complete your initial application. You will be asked to provide the
following items:

– A clear and concise proposal of 300 words or less explaining the
project to be undertaken.
– Links to one or two examples of past Triple Canopy magazine projects
that relate to or model your own proposed project in some significant way.
– A single link to past work, such as a portfolio website or blog,
published article, essay, story, or poem. Multi-author projects (e.g., by a
collective) should include just one link.
– CV or résumé (DOC or PDF format).

*Initial applications are due by midnight on Monday, February 11, 2013*.
You will be notified by March 1, should your proposal reach the second
round of review. Applicants who reach the second round of review will
receive an email asking them to submit a detailed project proposal, along
with several samples of past work, and invited to discuss their plans in
greater detail with Triple Canopy editors. Commission recipients will be
announced on April 2. Projects will be developed in collaboration with
Triple Canopy editors for publication between July 1, 2013 and June 30,

All proposals must comply with the following restrictions:

– Only individuals or collectives may apply. We cannot accept
submissions from other organizations or established platforms, such as film
festivals or lecture series.
– Proposals for the creation of independent websites will not be
– Past contributors to Triple Canopy are not eligible for our annual
call for proposals.
– Please do not submit more than one application.

Professor Hadler to speak in a symposium about artist Po Kim

January 22, 2013

> Po Kim: Global Identity
> Symposium Event: Thursday, January 24, 2013, 6-8pm
> Location: Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Gallery (417 Lafayette Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10003) Contact Info: 212.598.1155, >
> In conjunction with the current exhibition, Po Kim and Sylvia Wald 1957 – 1970, five art historians will discuss the life and work of Po Kim (b. Korea 1917; immigrated to the U.S., 1955). Kim met Sylvia Wald (b. Philadelphia, 1915- d. New York, 2011)-an artist known for printmaking, painting, drawing, sculpture, and assemblage-in 1968 and married her shortly thereafter. The exhibition presents keys works by each artist from the years before they met. The panel discussion will contextualize Kim’s Abstract Expressionist works, beginning in 1957, when he moved to New York, until 1970 when he turned to figurative painting. Following the screening of a documentary on Po Kim, four panelists will give talks on the artist’s biography, Korean Contemporary Art in diaspora, Kim’s encounters with French art, and Internationalism and the New York School. The ensuing discussion will address issues regarding Abstract Expressionism in the era of globalism, broadening the canon, and artistic partnership. A second symposium will be devoted exclusively to the work of Sylvia Wald. >

Opportunity: Tulane-Siena Institute for International Law, Cultural Heritage and the Arts

January 18, 2013

[I would like to share with you an exciting program that we will offer in Siena, Italy this June. The Tulane – Siena Institute for International Law, Cultural Heritage and the Arts offers the unique opportunity to study the complex and fascinating relationship between international law, art and cultural property. There could be no better place to pursue such studies than in the artistic treasure that is Siena. Although the four credit summer abroad courses will be held at the Facolta di Giurisprudenza, Tuscany will be the true classroom, providing students with the opportunity to see and experience first-hand the issues that shape this field. Lectures are supplemented extensively with field trips to museums or private collections, looted sites and guest speakers to take full advantage of the program’s location. While the program was designed for law students, graduate students in other disciplines- such as art, art history, archeology, and anthropology-are encouraged to attend. In addition to our diverse faculty, this allows the program to bring together not only international legal scholars, but also scholars with art history, archaeology and cultural heritage expertise in order to provide a multi-dimensional understanding of the subject matter in the classroom. After finishing this academic component, interested students will then have the opportunity to put their new knowledge to use, working on the ground in Southeast Asia. In response to the looting of archaeological sites, the Kingdom of Cambodia’s Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts is launching a department to study and combat the illicit antiquities trade. Thanks to a partnership with Tulane Law School, selected interns will have an unprecedented opportunity to become involved in this exciting work. They will travel to the capital of Phnom Penh, where they will work alongside Cambodian and international colleagues, assisting the government in one of its most crucial efforts. In closing, let me encourage you to visit our website or contact me or our program coordinator, Chana Lewis, personally by phone (504-865-5990) or e-mail should you have further questions about this terrific program. Please share this wonderful opportunity with anyone you feel may be interested. We would also be very grateful if you would post one or both of our attached flyers where they can be seen by interested students. Ci vediamo in Italia!]
