CALL FOR PROPOSALS 📢


Prior to COVID-19 related interruptions, 24 VIEWS was envisioned as an exhibition with public facing activations. With health and safety concerns in mind, I have pivoted away from in-person programming and am now pursuing an expansive curatorial project.

24 VIEWS invites writers, artists, or anyone so inclined to submit proposals or existing work on past, current, or future implications of racial classification in the United States. We welcome critical essays, manifestos, treatises, poetry, prose, speculative fiction, and visual works of all media.

Modest stipends available. Work will be published online and promoted during 24 VIEWS’s exhibition at Left of Center in North Las Vegas. (Print edition possible, pending the outcome of funding opportunities🤞🏽)
