ARTIST CALL for fanzine. Deadline: March 15, 2019

2019 starts with a new project by Leporello and Origini edizioni.

Along the year, we want to produce 4 publications, working as variations on the theme of fanzine.
A simple format, not more than 40 pages, smaller than a A4, bigger than a A5, produced with Origini edizioni style and artisan care, but in a simplified version.
Valentino Barachini and Chiara Capodici will take care of the book design and once all the 4 publication will be published, they’ll be collected in a box.

We selected a number of authors we love to propose them a theme:

“The earth. Meant as solid matter, shape: in the guise of rock, mountain, volcano… or pure sand, dune, land. Images on pure matter.”

We also decided to extend our proposal to a public call so to be surprised by what is still unknown.

Among the selected authors there are more known and emerging ones.
We will choose 4 of them, 1 from the public call, according to the project proposed and the way the projects work together.

Each author will receive 10 copies of his/her publication, printed in edition of 100, and for each publication there will be a presentation in Leporello.

Send us not more than 50 images (jpg, 300 dpi, 15 cm width) and a short statement (max 3000 characters) by March 15 at leporello.books@gmail.com

We look forward to enjoying your works!

Call for Residency Proposals: Counterpublics. Deadline: Jan 15, 2019  

Call for Residency Proposals: Counterpublics
We are excited to open our call for proposals for our next residency session: Counterpublics.

The session will take place from April 1st through July 31st, 2019 in parallel with a large-scale public art platform, Counterpublic, which will commission artists, activists, designers, choreographers, writers, and performers to activate storefronts, parks, and gathering spaces throughout our neighborhood, embedding art directly within the everyday life of the community.

Counterpublic attempts to expand spaces of dissent, dialogue, care, and complexity within The Luminary’s immediate community through responsive commissions and intentional intersections with this space. We encourage applications that engage communal land use and neighborhood change, monument-making for marginalized communities, choreographies of resistance, and the decolonization of public space.

Projects may take the form of:

  • Site-responsive installations, exhibitions, performances, screenings, durational projects and other forms to be situated in the everyday spaces of our neighborhood
  • Writing and Publications to engage the session’s concept through contextual criticism, embedded critique, and responsive modes of publication

Selected residents will be commissioned to create new work or re-stage previous work that directly engages this platform. Residents will receive a stipend of up to $1,500 (depending on duration and proposed project), travel stipend, housing, and dedicated staff support. Additional project support may be available in select circumstances.

Applications will be reviewed as received with a final deadline on January 15th.

To find out more and to apply online, please visit our website.

Help support the construction of our new live/work studios that will host this program on-site for the first time in our history. This will be a new home for art in St. Louis, supporting leading artists, critics, and curators to make extensive impact on our area ecosystem for years to come.
