Three projects by Field Study

I contributed to a Field Study Artistamp project last year
and received an amazingly well assembled book in return.
It was well worth the effort.

ATC Call

13. CALL | Richmond Art Gallery | Call for Artist Trading Cards | SEP 4


Open to all participants in the Lower Mainland and Beyond

Exhibition Dates: September 18 – October 30 2009
Deadline for ATC Submission: Post-mark deadline of September 4, 2009
Closing Celebration and Trading Session: Friday, October 30, 7:00 - 8:30pm

The Richmond Art Gallery's 4th Annual Artist Trading Card Exhibition is a display of Artist Trading
Cards (ATCs) from local, national, and international participants. Everyone is invited to
participate, and all techniques and mediums are welcome. Throughout the exhibition there will be
drop-in workshops, trading sessions, artist talks, and a gala closing celebration/trading session.
All contributors will receive a copy of the full-colour exhibition poster featuring one of their works.

What Are ATCs? Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are miniature works of original art measuring 2 ½” x
3 ½” that are made to trade. This international art movement is intended to be a non-commercial,
non-hierarchical, non-judgemental avenue for artistic exchange.

2009 ATC Exhibition Guidelines:
ATCs will be on display in the gallery coinciding with the exhibition Migration/Immigrant Stories by
Elizabeth Russell, and the group exhibition Black Hole is Also Supernova by Colleen Brown,
Paul Kajander, Kara Uzelman. View our website for details on these exhibitions and for ideas of
related themes: www.richmondartgallery.org.

ATCs must be original artworks, and may be in a series, edition or multiple. Please “sign” the
back of each card. All ATCs will be traded on the closing night of the exhibition. We will try to
ensure fair trades for those not in attendance for the closing Trading Session: original works will
be traded for originals, and digital works will be traded with other digital works.

To Enter: Send in 9 Artist Trading Cards in a standard 9-sleeve plastic sheet (9 cards per sheet).
Cards will be displayed in the plastic sheets. Cards must each measure 2 ½” x 3 ½” in order to
qualify. All works received that follow this criteria will be exhibited.

Fatshion zine

An upcoming and new Fatshion zine is seeking mail art submissions to be republished in our first issue. Submissions are due by August 30th, 2009. Accepted pieces will receive a free copy of the zine in response. Please see the below call for submissions for ideas and political platform. Please send in postcard format, both sides to be reproduced.

Fatshion Zine Call for Submissions

Are you interested in taking part in a yet-to-be named fierce, Radical Fatshion (fat fashion) zine project? I am looking for anyone interested in submitting writing or easy-to-reproduce visual art/comics.

Here are some topics that I specifically would be happy to see in the zine:

-Commentary on/tearing apart the mainstream plus size fashion industry
-Pretty pictures of our favorite cheap and chic and riotous and fabulous fatshions
-Fat/plus-size diy projects
-Reviews and shout outs of products/shops/blogs that we love
-A collage
-Other stuff like crossword puzzles, short comic strips, smut about fucking in the Torrid fitting room, whatever. AND OH YEAH, stores about our fat childhoods/pre-adolescent/
teenage years.
-The experiences of folk who are a size 28+, POC, poor/working class, queer, trans, and/or diff-abled.

I am also looking for folk to help me brainstorm a name and make copies and staple things and make layouts and stuff. Volunteer! I also need an artist or two interested in creating cover art and graphics.

This project and its time line are still taking shape, but my goal is to have a finished first issue by September 10th, 2009! The deadline for submissions is August 30th. Please re-post and tell your friends.

This is going to be a wholly fat-positive/glorifying, trans-inclusive, anti-racist/poc centered, anti-class-ist, acknowledging our privilege type of shebang. And, of course, really fun and ferocious.

Submissions, questions, comments, whateves can go to:
