The Journal of Visual & Critical Studies (JVCS) collects and celebrates some of the best undergraduate academic writing at OCAD University. Comprising exhibition and performance reviews, critical essays, and thesis abstracts, this anthology challenges the boundaries of art history and visual studies in order to produce innovative relationships between art, design, and academia at OCAD U and beyond. Contributors will be invited to the Journal’s launch as a part of GradEx 2019.

We encourage students to submit work that they have written for courses and would feel proud to share with the OCAD U Community. The Editorial Committee is seeking submissions from all current OCAD U students in the following formats:

Exhibition and Performance Reviews [250 to 500 words]:
Reviews of exhibitions, performances or art-related events that happened after April 2018. We welcome reviews that are local, national, or international in scope.

Critical Essays [1000 to 2000 words]:
We publish academic essays about art, design, and visual studies. We are open to a wide range of methods and analyses, including experimental writing on aesthetic experiences and interdisciplinary research. We can accept excerpts from larger essays.

Abstracts of Thesis Projects [150 to 250 words]:
Art or design students may submit up to 3 images of their works to contextualize their abstract. Images provided should be 300 DPI.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:
Submissions should be sent either as an email attachment, or as a link to a Google Drive file to visualcriticalstudies@gmail.com. Writing should be submitted as a Word Document (.doc or .docx) and Chicago style citations are encouraged.

In your submission email please provide a ONE to TWO sentence biography that includes your name, your program, the year of your program (for ex: Third-year student), and a few details about your research interests and/or studio practice.
