Publication Intensive

Back to top


The Publication Intensive is a free two-week program in the history and contemporary practice of publication. Each year we invite applicants who are in the early stages of their careers (or enrolled in graduate programs) and have backgrounds in areas such as writing, art, literature, art history, new media, and design. During the Publication Intensive, Triple Canopy editors lead discussions and workshops with participating students, who research, analyze, and develop projects that hinge on new technologies but also mine the history of print culture and artistic practice. The program includes visits to studios of artists and designers, archives, and cultural institutions. Past guest speakers include Erica Baum, Lucas Blalock, Mel Bochner, Maria Sachiko Cecire, Yoonjai Choi, Malik Gaines, Zanna Gilbert, David Horvitz, Andrés Jaque, Steffani Jemison, Miriam Katzeff, John Keene, Chad Kloepfer, Anjuli Raza Kolb, Prem Krishnamurthy, Andrew LeClair, David Levine, Tan Lin, Lauren McCarthy, Harsh Patel, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, David Senior, Erin Shirreff, and Simone White.

The Publication Intensive addresses 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? How have responses differed in areas with disparate resources and relationships to technology? What might historical relationships between publishing, technology, and the public sphere teach us about these contemporary dynamics? How do issues of access and identity condition our interactions with online forums and digital media?

Past support for the Publication Intensive has been generously provided by the Brown Foundation, Inc., of Houston, Alexander Keith, and 2x4.
