The deadline for the artcore journal‘s Introvert/Extrovert issue has passed. Please continue to check back for future calls for content.

artcore journal, vol. 2, Issue 2


artcore journal’s seeks content for the fourth issue titled Introvert/Extrovert. Writers, curators, artists, and more are encouraged to submit a broad range of written and/or visual proposals that delve deeply into discussions, criticisms, and visual and curatorial perspectives that speak to the theme of this issue. Some topics for consideration may include but are not limited to—the trajectories and dichotomy of psychological space(s) as divergent perspectives on the meditative, introspective, and withdrawn conditions and its contrasting outgoing, unreserved, and unabashed contrarian course; aligned and disparate occurrences of the introvert/extrovert in contemporary art practice; aspects that correlate with modes of inner and outward visual expressions; investigations of the space(s) between these extreme binary opposites; and evolving and/or radical modes of transitional phases between these heterogeneous subjects—to name a few. The Introvert/Extrovert theme of this issue was inspired by recording artist Santigold’s lyrics for L.E.S. Artistes, in particular the following excerpt,

What am I here for

I left my home to disappear is all

I’m here for myself

Not to know you

I don’t need no one else

Fit in so good the hope is that you cannot see me later

You don’t know me

I am an introvert an excavator

I’m duckin’ out for now

A face in dodgy elevators

Creep up and suddenly

I found myself

An innovator

As is artcore journal‘s rubric, contributions should also provide informative, rigorous, and unique content that speaks to the spatial considerations of the chosen topic.
