approximately 14,000 works spanning 45 years.
Artist and educator Deanna Bowen and the Media Arts Network of Ontario are seeking papers for a, yet untitled, publication that documents the historical and contemporary contributions that First Nations, Métis, and Inuit (FNMI), racialized, differently abled, or LGBTQ cultural producers have made to the media arts in Canada. Instead of anti-canonic, we see this project as one that can map an alternate set of discourses, practices and views across the field since the 1970s. Though not exhaustive, our goal is to produce a book of national scope that addresses the ways in which individual and collective media arts practitioners outside of the established white experimental film/video canon have endeavored to create time based works in (often) less than ideal creative climates. We also strive to examine the development and evolution of public funding policies that have helped and/or hindered the creation of media arts centres, curatorial collectives, and archival initiatives.
For all artists, the availability of institutionally validated texts engaging their work is key for market access. This is heightened for “marginalized” media artists who are primarily documented in minor accounts in broad histories focused on white mainstream artists. Our call for papers reflects our goals to address these omissions and increase the visibility of FNMI, racialized, differently abled, or LGBTQ Canadian writers discussing arts and culture whilst simultaneously and proactively championing challenging viewpoints outside of mainstream Canadian art criticism. Given the scarcity of existing texts of this nature, thisbook must be viewed as a beginning. And while printed books are an important contribution for libraries, students and scholars, we believe that publishing essays about media art with static images and text is particularly limiting and counterintuitive. Our publication will be a larger and more open-ended web project that cannot be contained to the printed page.
Selected chapters, papers and projects will be published in book format in an edition of 1000 print copies and on a website containing all texts along with select media clips from the works they reference. We believe this approach to be a more dynamic, immersive publishing strategy that allows writers to be creative with their texts by including video clips, still images, audio files and web links. The intent with the site is to recognize and circumvent the incompleteness of any book to document the activity of FNMI, racialized, differently abled, or LGBTQ media artists within the Canadian frame by producing a discursive space that highlights evolving media arts histories over time.
Possible topics can include, but are not limited to:
Selected writers will be remunerated. The deadline for submitting paper proposals is July 14, 2017.
Deadline for final papers is March 1, 2018.
Please send a 300–500 word abstract and title, as well as your CV, address, telephone number, email address to: email@example.com

Vertical Features takes its name from Peter Greenaway’s 1978 featurette Vertical Features Remake. A fictional documentary that also borrows from the language of structural film, Greenaway’s experiment serves to trouble claims of authenticity and authorship, issues still relevant in the world of documentary and other non-fiction media, especially as it moves online and into the gallery.
The name Vertical Features serves to evoke the idea of work that exists adjacent—even perpendicular—to conventional cinema, works that risk oversight. The series hopes to promote vital non-fiction film and video that has had little or no Toronto exposure, including documentary, essay films, hybrid experiments, and artists’ moving image, placing contemporary films in dialogue with historical rediscoveries. Supplemented by introductions and discussions with guest scholars, artists, and critics, Vertical Features serves to highlight and situate these exceptional works.
