This is a site for art that communicates alternative ideas and imagery different from the mainstream using the visual language of formalist aesthetics. The challenge is to marry intellectual content and visual form equally providing art for art’s sake and art as an agent of social change. Post colonial discourse, class and identity issues, environmental art, personal documentary and alternative approaches to questions of power are all welcome to be explored through diverse art forms. If your submission is rejected from this group please feel welcome to submit to our other groups which may be more relevant for your work.
