Call for Proposals
un Magazine volume 3 issue 1

un Magazine – Melbourne’s leading independent magazine for writing on contemporary visual art. un Magazine fosters and offers opportunities to promote independent and critical thinking regarding contemporary art in all media. Focused on artists, writers, artist run and independent projects and contemporary art communities, un Magazine is an important platform for the dialogue of ideas extending from the local into national and international contexts.

We welcome proposals for contributions including but not limited to: criticism or review of recent contemporary art projects, exhibitions and publications (taking place in the previous five months); interviews; essays and features on topics of current debate; and experimental contemporary art practice engaged with text, writing or publication modes of display.

For this issue we are particularly interested in: writing that engages with multidisciplinary practice and art outside the gallery (i.e. site-specific work, performative practices, etc.); styles of writing ranging from the critical and analytic to creative and fictional or speculative; interviews; artist pages; art as text and collaborations.

All proposals must be submitted using the attached guidelines and application form (attached) or available at:

Deadline for proposals: 13 March 2009

All submissions and editorial enquiries should be emailed to the Editor, Zara Stanhope: please do not send extended or finished texts without prior consultation

We are able to offer a one-to-one mentorship for a select number of contributors. The mentorship program offers the benefit of working with an experienced art writer in the drafting and development of your writing for publication.
