Big Red & Shiny (www.bigredandshiny.com) is a web-based monthly publication devoted to contemporary art writing in all its facets. Centered around the history, theory, and reception of contemporary art, we have published texts and criticism on a wide range of subjects, including architecture, performance, food & art, augmented reality, the linguistic habits of art writers, in depth examinations of Mark Morrisroe, Jimmy Durham, Luther Price, & The Jogging, as well as interviews with a range of artists, curators, and program directors from around the world.
The Editors are currently seeking previously unpublished submissions from writers, academics, artists, video producers, historians, critics, and theorists. We are interested in long form essays, averaging 3000-5000 words, by writers who investigate how art can function. In parallel to publishing those essays, we are interested in fostering author-artist collaborations that combine original texts with multimedia contributions (video, audio, photography, animation). We publish in depth reviews of current art exhibits and events, which run around 1500-3000 words.
We have no limits on writers' locations, current academic status, or publication history; however, we do seek submissions that have a New England or Boston connection. Commissioned writers receive ongoing editorial support and an honorarium.
Submissions, in the form of abstracts or writing samples, should be sent to Maia Dolphin-Krute, editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions will be accepted on an ongoing basis.
