"Call for Artists: SIFT 2002 (June 6 - July 20) A Group Exhibition Curated by Carla Garnet"
2001-12-14 until 2002-01-10
Open Studio
Toronto, ON, CA Canada

OPEN STUDIO invites artists to submit proposals from an alternate universe for SIFT an exhibition that questions the boundaries of contemporary printmaking practice by using all forms of media.

It was myself, Nicholas said, standing beside the bed gazing down at me. I recognized myself. . . . I told him it was himself from an alternate universe. The proof was that he recognized himself. Had it been a future self he would not have recognized it, since it would have been altered from the features he saw in the mirror. No one could ever recognize his future self. I had written about that in a story, once. In the story the man's future self comes back to warn him just as he, the protagonist, was about to do something foolish. The protagonist, not recognizing his future self, had killed it. I have yet to market the story, but my hopes were good...

(Philip K. Dick as the Philip K. Dick character in his last novel RADIO FREE ALBEMUTH ISBN: 0-679-78137-4, which takes place in the late 1960's where a paranoid incompetent has schemed his way into the White House and convulsed America in a vicious war against imaginary internal enemies)

While literature is one repository for dreams and fears, comedy and tragedy, the pursuit of truth, beauty and alternate views, SIFT suggests that contemporary art functions as another treasury for complex intelligence.
