Call for submissions: Polarity Issue 2

Wanted: artists and art writers to submit work for issue 2 of Polarity magazine.

Arms vs. Song

(The Hunger 2008, Dir: Steve Mcqueen)

Artists working in any medium and writers interested in writing about artists and art movements should pitch towards this theme.

We have one foot in the door with the small-press literary world and another with the fine art world. Do you believe that this is another artificial ‘vs’? We do.

Issue 1 contained selected images from  Sharon Kivland’s photographic work on Freud, Kristin Sherman’s installations, Hazel Atasharoo’s sensuous and fantastical photography set-ups, John Yeadon’s plates of messy fish and finger paint, Oliver Bedeman’s accomplished drawings of gloomy interiors and more.

We’re equal opportunities for all mediums, all messages. We tip our hats across the corridor of time to the Surrealists – Bataille et al – but we look to the future and hope to become the New Surreal. Whatever that turns out to be.

The essays, fiction and poetry are of the highest quality too. You can expect to be featured alongside the best underground and award-winning authors and poets.

Please email finished items or proposals to

Deadline: 1st September 2010

We’ve just launched our first issue, ‘Death vs Taxes’, priced at £10, which you can purchase in order to get a taste at:
