From the Interstitial Arts Foundation who are going to have a lot of fun with their next anthology before, during, and after it comes out. These are the people, after all, who’re interested in skipping and slipping along between the cracks, so read on if you like the weird mixed with the weird:
Dear lovers of Interstital Arts,
We are proud to announce the publication of our second volume of Interfictions, edited by Delia Sherman and Christopher Barzak.
To celebrate the release of this unique anthology we are delighted to present our second annual Interfictions auction. Like all interstitial arts, this auction is more than the sum of its parts. Artists participating in this year’s auction may draw their inspiration from the first anthology or will be allowed to have first look at a story from the new book. This means that the 2009 auction is in the unique position of being an artistic fan celebration for an anthology that does not yet technically exist. We invite you to add your voice to this synthesis of words and imagination.
The first auction featured jewelry artists from across the country participating in a collaboration across mediums. The artists’ imaginations, triggered by words and images, produced over a dozen magnificent pieces of art. This year we’re expanding the focus beyond jewelry to music and wearable/portable art in any medium.
How It Works:
- On the Call to Artists page you will find short excerpts from the stories in Interfictions 2. As you click through them, we hope that at least one will immediately call to you. Choose a story you’d like to read in full, then fill out the form at the bottom of that page. Alternately, artists may also choose to submit work based on the first Interfictions volume, available in bookstores.
- Within 7 days we will send you a confirmation of receipt and, barring any questions we may have, you will receive the story you chose in email as a PDF. Then read, enjoy, and be inspired!
- Completed pieces are due by September 20. The auction begins in November!
