Open call for artist submissions!

Calling all artists, artist collectives, artisans, writers, poets, designers, researchers, musicians and filmmakers, you’ve got till 13 June to submit your work for Abu Dhabi Cultural Foundation’s upcoming online zine journal on Vernacular Culture: Integrate, Collaborate and Change.

Inspired by the ground-breaking literary magazine Souffles-Anfas, published in Morocco from 1966–71, the zine will be produced during the Mohammed Chabâa: Visual Consciousness exhibition at the Foundation.

Submissions will be selected by the Cultural Foundation team who is on the lookout for works that highlight vernacular culture – cultural forms created by members of the community in any artist media, as part of the everyday environment.
