FAQ's

Q: I submitted to an issue and was not selected, can I submit to the next open call?
A: Yes! Each issue is curated by a different guest curator, so you may apply to as many issues as you like. However, If you are selected to appear in an issue, you cannot be featured in the next two issues.

Q: I am an international artist, can I still apply?
A: Each issue has different submission requirements. If the issue is only open to artists working in a particular region, it will be clearly stated in the submission guidelines. However, if you reside outside of the US, we unfortunately cannot send a complimentary of the issue due to shipping and customs fees.

Q: I have submitted multiple times and I have not been accepted, how can I better the odds that I will be selected for an issue?
A: Each open call is unique because we invite a different curator to select entries for each issue. However, please make sure that your submission includes all of the required materials in the requested format. Professional, high-quality photographs that allow the curator to clearly view your work are a must. 

Q: I see that you conduct interviews with the artists, how will this happen if I am selected?
A: We will conduct the interview via email and give you the opportunity to respond to the questions in writing. We may ask follow up questions to all you to further clarify or elaborate upon your responses.

Q: What happens to the issues when they are printed?
A: Issues of the magazine are distributed to galleries and arts organizations, and are also available in a growing number of bookstores and shops both in the US and Internationally. You can find a list of our current stockists here. They are also available for purchase via our online store.

Q: I am interested in curating an issue, how do I find out more?
A: We select curators far in advance of the open call deadlines. If you are interested in curating a future issue, please send us an email at info@maake.org. Individuals, groups, or galleries are eligible to curate issues. 

Q: I operate a gallery and would be interested in collaborating on an event or exhibition, is this possible?
A: We often collaborate with galleries or artist-run spaces on different events. Send us a note if you have an idea!
