4 Lunchtime Conversations          

Guest chefs prepare a simple menu of soup, bread, and dessert for a base price of $10 a guest. Vegetarian and vegan options are always available. Drinks may be purchased a la carte, and donations of greater than $10 are always appreciated. Musical entertainment is provided for mealtime enjoyment. Provision supports local farmers and grocers when possible and gratefully accepts food donations.

Up to four proposals seeking funding are presented on “menus” at each dinner table. Guests hear presentations from proposer-s, read the proposals, and discuss them with others at their table. Each guest scores the proposals based on a common rubric. The highest scored proposal is funded with the net proceeds from dinner, and if possible a secondary award to the second-highest scored proposal is also granted. Awards, based on attendance, are between $200 and $750.

Documentation of funded projects is presented at future Provision meal gatherings.

Cabinet publishes artist projects that treat the magazine itself as an exhibition venue. Unlike most contemporary art magazines, we would like our reader to actually encounter the artwork rather than simply learn of its existence. Photography, conceptual projects, text-based work, or work that treats the formal issues raised by the print medium (i.e; paper, printing, ink, etc.) are particularly well-suited for publication in Cabinet. We do not publish documentation of sculpture or of a performance or installation. Video stills and architecture proposals are also highly unusual for us to print. While a resume is not needed, a brief statement about the work can be included if you think it useful. Don’t forget that artist projects appear in both the unthemed and themed portions of the magazine.

Upcoming themed issues and deadlines

Issue 51 (Fall 2013, with a themed section on “Wheels”): 15 May 2013
Issue 52 (Winter 2013–2014, with a themed section on “Celebration”): 15 August 2013

The Society of Typographic Aficionados is pleased to announce the fourth annual SOTA Catalyst Award.
