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 and 008 is supported by:
