OKAY DISPATCH 02: Cut and Paste

Call for submissions

OKAY Collective is looking for artworks dealing with the expanded theme of “cut and paste” for its upcoming issue of Dispatch. Be it in a literal sense such as collage and assemblage, or artworks dealing with the insertion of any thing into anything else. Works dealing with displacement, or the mixture of two different themes or ideologies are always appreciated. Dispatch is a publication of artist multiples and book works that do not fit easily into galleries, so please tailor your submission accordingly.

We are looking for publication-ready artworks. This means that the work must be collected, ready for distribution. We suggest all work to be created and packaged after acceptance, but if packaging is an issue, we are willing to work with artists / makers to do so. Keep in mind if OKAY Collective is to supply packaging, we will ask the applicant to cover expenses (details can be sorted on project-by-project basis as needed). All artwork will be collected 40-60 days after acceptance.

We are also accepting project proposals for Dispatch 02. If accepted, the project must be completed in time for collection (see above timeline). OKAY Collective is willing to work with artists to complete these projects by offering guidance, but physical production of the artwork is the responsibility of the contributor.

OKAY Dispatch believes in paying its contributors. Artists will be paid a percentage of all sales of the issue they are featured in. This percentage will be determined after applicants have been accepted. OKAY Collective reserves the right to use all documentation for advertising or publication purposes. 


We look forward to your submissions, and below is a break down of submission requirements:

100-150 word artist statement
Proposed edition size
CV optional (If you have never shown, not a problem. We like new people.)
Documentation of previous or proposed work (max 5 pictures, 72 dpi jpegs)
Link to website or other online presence
(All submissions should be in .PDF format, excluding images)
Submission deadline is September 30th at midnight
Please send all submissions to okaymailbox@gmail.com
