“I’m caught in the haze of midsummer Los Angeles, the cosmic edge we give to its preemptive emptiness. Things happen, but they never quite add up. I think it’s something about the quality of attention, information endlessly transmitted but never received.”

-Chris Kraus, Video Green 

We're on our way–VIA Issue 03. We’ve been around for two issues now, and we’re here to give the quality of attention that is needed to this fair, sprawling city of so-called emptiness. It’s time for us to have self-definition, and for you, dear contributor, we hope that you help us add quality and attentiveness to the value of art (theory), and creative journalism. 

While the scope of the contributor projects can vary (roving into social practice, design, publishing, research and other fields) contributors should always consider how their interview, feature, or review reflects back on the state of culture in Los Angeles. As an interdisciplinary publication, we are interested in work that considers how the various avenues of LA visual, economic, aural, and culinary culture overlap and work together (or against each other!) to form our current cultural landscape.

VIA is now accepting submissions for Issue 03. We’re open to many forms of content: essays, editorial, photography, creative writing, interviews, reviews, and bodies of work. Please submit a 500 word proposal, supporting images, a CV, and a writing sample to .

Submission proposal deadline: March 10, 2014
Publication date: Summer/Fall 2014
