To extend the theme from yesterday’s posts, integration of art into life is becoming increasingly popular among performance artists and young individuals. Here’s half of an amazing project by Linda Montano called Fourteen Years of Living Art. The results are recorded on an extension of her main website: here.
“7 YEARS OF LIVING ART is a time-based, endurance/performance which focuses the mind in a directed way so that art becomes a vehicle for meditation. Wearing one color of clothing each year that corresponds to the color of a specific Chakra (Hindu energy system), I was able to stay attentive to my intention. That is, to train the mind not to wander, shop around, or buy into the millions of distractions that impinge minute-to-minute.”
If you haven’t already, make sure to submit to our Spring Edition of Fiant Verbas. The deadline is April 15th. We are a literary and artistic journal, dedicated to displaying new work throughout the United States and abroad.
We are now accepting submissions for the Spring 2017 Edition: the theme is Integrate.
Integration can encompass a wide variety of things. It can relate to social, racial, or religious movements. It can explain a combination of forms: artistic, for example. It is not without tension, without movement, and is a tool that carries its weight in history. The Oxford English Dictionaries defines the term loosely as “Combine (one thing) with another to form a whole.”
The deadline for submission is April 15th, 2017.
- We accept submissions of various genres including (but not limited to): poetry, fiction, non-fiction (reviews, politics, op-ed), theater, audio/visual, photography, and painting.
- No submission may exceed 10 pages in length.
- Poets: please submit no more than five poems at a time.
- Excerpts from bigger pieces are accepted.
- If you wish to submit something, but are unsure of how to (such as dance, performance, etc.), contact us!
- No fee for submission at this time.
- Send all work via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope everyone is having an excellent Sunday! One of our country’s more interesting pop stars is performing at the half time show. It’ll be interesting to see what Gaga has in store for us. Cheers!
