Interjection Calendar
The Interjection Calendar is an online project, devised and hosted by Montez Press. Each month an artist or writer is commissioned to produce a new piece of work for release on our website. The PDF can be downloaded for free and there are 12 releases per year, in line with the calendar theme. At the end of the year the collection is published, demonstrating a diverse range of collaborations and experimental works. The calendar reflects the current importance of online content media, pushing image/text relationships in this domain through contemporary art writing.

The Interjection Calendar 007 is supported by:

2022/05 Ellie Hoskins – BROKEN LITTLE THINGS


Ellie Hoskins is an artist and writer from Wigton, Cumbria who currently lives and works in Liverpool. Her work is born out of a constant struggle to harmonise polarized emotions: tragedy sits alongside comedy, chaos alongside calm, seriousness alongside silliness and despair alongside hope. Other than that, she rarely knows what she’s doing. Her process is instinctive and quick, and she places her faith in the fact that one sentence will lead to another. And then another. And another. And eventually something bigger than the sentences, something like a theme or a meaning or a punchline, will surface.

2022/04 El Salem – The Chase


El Salem is a writer, independent researcher and translator. He is currently living in exile in Europe.

2022/03 Amy Ching-Yan Lam – Protection
