Date/Time: 23/03/2004 12:00 am
NEW OPEN CALL for magazine or periodicals published by nonprofit and
alternative spaces, independent groups, artists, and artists’ collectives to
be part of the Nomads + Residents’ Traveling Magazine Table, which will be
on view in Art in General’s Project Space in New York in September and
October 2004 (instead of April, as previously announced).
Nomads+Residents has a special interest in projects that develop on a
collective basis and in artistic practices that involve making resources and
ideas available for common use. With this in mind, Nomads+Residents
initiated the Magazine Table in 2001 during the first “Lecture Lounge” at
the Clocktower of P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York.
Magazine Table consisted of collecting a broad variety of national and
international magazines, journals, and similar printed publications produced
by non-profit and alternative spaces, artists’ collectives, groups, teams,
and other forms of collaborations. The results granted an unexpected insight
of the discourses and networks existing outside the mainstream
channels of art.
In 2003, Nomads+Residents reactivated the Magazine Table with a new title,
Traveling Magazine Table, and a new format: twice a year, this continuously
growing collection of magazines and similar publications will be presented
in different venues. The Traveling Magazine Table activates the circulation
of and gives access to printed publications, many of which have a very
limited or difficult distribution. It provides information about ideas,
projects, practices, and discussions taking place in the broader field of
contemporary art and culture.
With each participating venue, the Traveling Magazine Table will be updated
with new materials and made available for public consultation. To guarantee
its continuity and growth, Nomads+Residents and the host venues announce an
open call for submissions to receive new publications. A list of
contributions will be published on the Nomads+Residents website (under
