Goals

Project Suspend aims to challenge artists to suspend their social filters, and then from a position of disorientation, to create. In other words, the project seeks and will try to encourage artists to create works in areas they are uninformed and unfamiliar with (ex. a straight person writing a poem about being gay, a person in a position of power depicting oppressed, a man singing about what it means to be woman).

We are not interested in works that are researched and informed by consulting others. Instead, we would like new imaginings of the subjects, focus of the works. Unlike many other spaces, this is a non-PC space, but we do ask that all works accompany an explanation. Deep self-reflection and analysis of one’s own work are required. If that condition doesn’t seem to be met, we will not accept a piece that could be considered to be offensive.
