The Dialogues section of Sumac Space is a platform for stimulating interaction and polyvocality, which encourages thinking and speaking nearby one another across physical distance and means of expression. Dialogues is a space of free thought and experimentation in form and content, where the common ground and linking subject are the artists presented in the exhibitions at Sumac Space, and the contemporary urgencies they respond to. Proposals from emerging writers, artists and curators who would like to try new and not-yet-tested strategies in working with text and image in relation to art are particularly welcome.

Sumac Space invites writers, curators, critics, researchers and thinkers to engage with the work of contemporary artists from the Middle East. Responses through research, contextual and visual essays, interviews, poetry, audio, video and hybrid formats are welcome.

Each contributor is free to decide about the form and content of their contribution, while receiving full editorial and English proofreading support. The following means of expression are encouraged:

Contextual and visual essays
Interviews and conversations
Curatorial texts
Reviews
Stories and mind maps using any combination of words, images and sounds
Curated reading lists
Audio and video responses

Please send your proposal (maximum 200 words), a few words about yourself and one of the following: a writing sample/a link to your website/a portfolio to editorial@sumac.space. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis and deadlines are agreed individually.
