Get ready for the return of Art F City’s essay series IMG MGMT! We’re excited. Joining some of this year’s invited artists (who include Phillip Andrew LewisKatie Bell, and Jack Early) we also opened this round up to reader submissions.

Created by Art Fag City founder Paddy Johnson in 2008, the series has been influencing people all over the world, thanks to contributors like Martha Rosler, VVORK, Shana Moulton, Michael Mahalchick, Petra Cortright, Lorna Mills, The Bruce High Quality Foundation, Roger White and Dushko Petrovich, and Anton Vidokle. Don’t underestimate its continuing significance. This year, Artinfo ranked Jon Rafman’s “Nine Eyes of Google Streetview” project (which appeared first as an IMG MGMT) number 13 out of 25 “Most Iconic” artworks of the last five years. So you’ll definitely want to read what’s next, or else risk personal irrelevance.
