Opportunities

Every ALKALI issue includes individual, uniquely curated artist interviews. The maximum number of interviews that each publication has is 5. 

The women artists included are emerging, established and returning individuals who create solid, insightful and intriguing work. Each artist is allocated around 4-5 pages on average, however this will vary as some peoples' work needs to be larger in size in order to show it off properly in the PDF.

The works chosen for each issue will have to do with variety of medium, approach to work, and also how the artists can fit in a solid curation with one another.
