Theme : Art and Its Genders: Trans, Queer and Feminist Perspectives.
Deadline for proposals: 
February 4, 2012
Deadline for final submissions: February 15, 2012
Date of publication: March 8, 2012

Central to trans, queer, and feminist self determination, perceptions of gender and sexuality are as varied as the bodies expressing them. From documentary portraiture, through physically demanding performance art, to abstract sculpture and digital creations, a vast array of artistic forms are employed by trans, queer, and feminist artists when representing themselves and their communities.  Formal and theoretically, multiplicity itself figures centrally, as cultural practices surrounding issues of gender and sexuality are brought together to form exhibitions, publications, and histories. This issue of .dpi seeks to explore and celebrate the ways in which artists contribute to the proliferation of multiple genders, sexualities, and feminisms and understandings thereof through their work.

Guest Editor-in-Chief for this issue, Johnny Nawracaj is a Polish-born writer and video/installation/performance artist. In their academic and artistic pursuits they explore love, loss, and longing with a particular investment in these themes as a part of radical queer and trans cultural production. Their performance works have seen the cabaret stages, theatre vitrines, and gallery floors of venues such as Café Cléopatre, Théâtre Ste. Catherine, and Toronto's Xpace.

We welcome submissions in textual (article, column, review, interview, case study, etc.) and artistic multimedia (podcast, video, audio, locative media, animation, design, etc.) form that expand upon the theme of this issue. We encourage contributions featuring media content; authors/artists are responsible for clearing all copyright attached to this content.

Proposals should include an abstract (300 words) and a biography (100 words).

Submissions are welcome in English or French.

Compensation: $100 - $175 (depending on number of accepted submissions) and a vast worldwide readership of your work.
