"Call for Artists: A Festival of the Syncretic Arts"
2003-05-23 until 2003-05-31
RU Russian Federation
The purpose of ARTCONCEPT is to develop a festival of the syncretic arts. Action, performance, installation, multimedia - considered "boundary" fields in relation to traditional art - demand more serious attention and study. We hope to present, as far as possible, the most tendentious currents in the modern cultural process.The festival will focus on the creators of conceptual art. We seek works by artists and experimenters who successfully create new experiences, innovators who develop new aesthetic layers.
The philosophy of festival is to gather under one "roof" diverse creative authors - artists, poets, musicians, writers, film-directors, multi-media creators, art-critics ...
We plan to publish a second and final catalogue of the festival, to sum up its achievements.
To entry for participation is in two steps:
First - the organizers dispose a site in internet and in mass-media, where are descriptions about ideas of festival, providing an email address where entrants can send descriptions of their projects as well as copies of their resumes.
Second, the organizers will notify entrants if their work has been chosen for inclusion in the festival. At that point, they may choose to submit additional material in the form of audio, video tapes or CDs.
A panel can be found on the website at
