Launched in 2015 to facilitate a new kind of interdisciplinary collaboration, each 7×7 invites one visual artist and one writer to engage in a two-week creative conversation. The format, inspired by Surrealist games of the early 20th century, challenges participants to improvise, in their respective disciplines, a spontaneous story that pushes into ever-wilder imaginative terrain. Every finished 7×7 is singular, unclassifiable, and wholly original.

A brand-new 7×7 collaboration arrives on our landing page every other Thursday. All foregoing collaborations will continue to be available to readers in the archives.

Follow us across social media platforms for announcements of future collaborations, updates, and more.
