Where:The program will take place in various sites throughout Los Angeles, including seminar conversations hosted at the Underground Museum, and visits to studios of artists and designers, archives, and cultural institutions.

Who:We invite applications from recent college graduates (and those with comparable experience) and graduate students. Prospective participants might have backgrounds in areas such as writing, art, literature, art history, new media, and design.

Apply:Online through 11:59pm EST on Sunday, November 19, 2017.

During the Publication Intensive, Triple Canopy editors and invited artists, writers, and technologists will lead discussions and workshops with participating students, who will research, analyze, and enact an approach to publication that hinges on today’s networked forms of production and circulation but also mines the history of print culture and artistic practice.

The Publication Intensive will address such questions as: How have artists, writers, and designers used the pages of magazines and books as sites of and material for experimentation? How have new-media publications challenged conventions of authorship and reception, only to have those very challenges soon become the foundation of the new economy? How have artists, writers, designers, and technologists responded to ensuing changes in the media landscape? And how have responses differed in areas with disparate resources and relationships to technology? What are the politics of access and identity associated with online public forums and media?
