As of 2012 we are no longer accepting submissions.
How We WorkWe work with artists to create hand silkscreened textiles which we make into an edition of objects. The objects are designed in collaboration with each artist to compliment the themes and ideas present in the textiles and may be functional or sculptural.
We are interested in working with artists from all disciplines. Knowledge of repeat pattern design and previous textile experience are not necessary. We can work with any artist who feels that the aesthetic of silkscreen printing will compliment their practice.
Each artist is offered a $500 stipend for their work on the creation of the repeat pattern design. Alula Editions takes care of all production costs and labor. Artists also keep 3 of the editioned objects for themselves.
