Call for Proposals:
Objects and images, preserved in archives, or immaterial and memorialized in the annals of memory. These are Relics. They are evocative, even provocative, and persevere through miraculous belief the traces of other cultures or markers of one’s own identity. They channel people, places, events, and ideas from the recent and distant past. They can be incredibly specific, affecting individuals or transcending culture and class, impacting communities both local and global. Charged by collective belief systems or personal significance, these items are honored through display and safe-keeping. In reliquaries, places of worship, and museum vitrines, or locked away in vaults, sock-drawers-- their presence embodied in ritual and custom.

Issue 97 invites proposals from artists and writers that investigate Relics; that consider traditions of making and preserving as well as the long-term significance of relics as they transform the personal, social, cultural and political.
