No, I don't know what the name means either. But regardless, Metonymy08 is a new collaborative art project, hopefully the first of a series of annual such things.

The idea behind Metonymy is to take a bunch of artists, some visual, some literary, and pair each of them up with another of the opposite field. These newly-formed pairs will then work together to create new art that combines elements of both their disciplines and explores areas outside of their expertise. The products of this collaboration will be presented in an exhibition, and there is also talk of a publication.

Metonomy are looking for artists to take part so if you're keen for doing something new and challenging then get in quick. Entries close 10th of March, with the collaborative pairings announced on the 15th.
