The next iteration of Capricious, the WATER issue, will see us diving into one of the most pressing
conservation topics of our time. The future of water, and its inextricable link to our planet’s survival, is unquestionably in the hands of our own generation as well as our children’s generations. So how do we see humanity’s relationship with water? How does that relationship appear in the developing world, as well as in the first world? And how do we, as individuals, interact with and think about water? Surprise us. Challenge the norm. Teach us something we don't already know.

Additionally, with this issue, we are very excited to announce a new Capricious collaboration. Kindle
Project LLC and Capricious are joining forces to present The Kindle Project Photography Awards.
Three photographers exploring the theme of water in distinguishing ways will be provided with an award of $1000 USD. A selection committee will choose the artists. (Committee members have not yet been announced.)

Since 2008, Kindle Project LLC has supported artists working in traditional, modern, and experimental modes that question, confront, explore, frame or reframe the following: perceptions of identity; worldviews and the collective conscious; individual and social conditioning; relationships between nature, culture, and technology; the consensus of what is beautiful and what is ugly; the institutionalization of who can experience art and how it is experienced; political frameworks and authority; and sensuality.

Kindle Project Mission: In these times of change, our social and political structures, environmental practices, relationships, and worldviews are being challenged to evolve. As paradigms are shifting and current ways of living prove unsustainable, Kindle Project recognizes an opportunity to contribute to emerging alternatives for personal, institutional and planetary well-being.
Through the means of grant making and collaboration, Kindle Project seeks to foster a nexus of creative ideas and cultivators to inspire and support possibilities for change.

Capricious Mission: Capricious Magazine and it’s related projects provide a platform for the work of emerging and underrepresented fine art photographers who push the boundaries of their medium and bring critical attention to social, political, and environmental topics. Capricious thereby offers vital support needed to help both the artists and the issues to gain greater visibility.

Submission Instructions:
We want you to submit 6-12 photographs (more will not be viewed). We accept all formats and all colors. Email your submission (images should be approximately 8x10 inches @ 72 dpi) to: Not all submissions will be guaranteed a spot in the coming issue but Capricious will consider your submission for future issues. Please make sure you have model (or any other legally necessary) releases for all submitted work. Capricious has the right to use published material in promotional matters.

Deadline: September 5, 2012. For further questions, email

Baang and Burne Contemporary Call for New Artists 2012

For Baang and Burne Contemporary’s 2012 exhibition season, we’ve decided, once again, to do something a bit unconventional. We are hosting an international open call to artists.

Just to be clear, we are not doing an open call for a juried group exhibition; we’re looking to sign new artists to our gallery for inclusion in exhibitions, projects, and events for the 2012-2014 seasons.

DEADLINE:  August 15, 2012.


Open to all artists, age 18+, who wish to be considered for a two year representation contract with the gallery. All submitted artwork must be available and for sale.


Entries will only be accepted online:

Artists should submit 8 images of their most recent artwork, an artist statement (150 word maximum), a CV, and if possible a URL to their website.

Baang + Burne will only be accepting entries submitted through this system. E-mail or paper submissions will not be accepted.


Every submission will be personally considered and reviewed by Baang + Burne Gallery Directors Kesha Bruce and Charlie Grosso and Associate Director Erin Skaryak.


Baang + Burne Contemporary is an unconventional art gallery directed by contemporary artists Kesha Bruce and Charlie Grosso. Our gallery aims to challenge the premise of what an art gallery can be. We’re interested in engaging the world at large and presenting work that generates dialogue critically, socially, and culturally.

In the first 16 months of Baang + Burne Contemporary’s existence, we experimented with apartment shows, private “invitation only” events, and 6x6, an art version of a music festival.  For 6x6 we presented six exhibitions in six weeks, bringing together unexpected alliances and partnerships from various creative fields outside the art world and from non-profit arts organizations.

We are committed to asking challenging questions and using the gallery to continually experiment so that we may find the new solutions for both artists and collectors.  Baang and Burne Contemporary is designed to continually challenge and constantly innovate. Our Mission is to make art the agent and not merely the product.


Contact the gallery by e-mail at for more information or if you have questions regarding the open call, exhibitions, or this prospectus.
