"Call to Artists: Seeking Artists for the 2004 Exhibition Schedule"
2004-01-14 until 2004-03-15
Arts Center of the Capital Region
USA United States of America
The Arts Center of the Capital Region is now seeking compelling work in all mediums for possible inclusion in future exhibitions at the dynamic, community-based multi-arts center in downtown Troy, New York. To be considered for these competitive opportunities, artists should send work that will engage and excite a discerning panel of artists and gallery professionals. Such notable artists as Mark Dion, Stelarc, Kara Walker and Jenny Holzer have been or will be featured in exhibitions in The Arts Center's modern 1,800-square-foot gallery, along with scores of exceptional emerging artists from the region and throughout the nation.
The committee expects to review work for both an open call and for two themed exhibitions. To receive a complete prospectus, please email email@example.com or call (518) 273-0552. The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2004.
For the Open Call, The Arts Center is interested in reviewing new work in all media-painting, printmaking, sculpture, installation, video, photography, performance and mixed media presentations, as well as curatorial proposals. Collaborative artists are encouraged to apply.
"Space Invaders," to be curated by Gretchen Wagner, assistant curator of the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY, will present work that investigates the tenuous borders delineating public and private terrains. Consequently, it aims to give voice to diverse perspectives on a condition that is an inescapable reality of the world in which we live. All media are welcome, and artists working with installation, video, performance and sound art are encouraged to apply.
"Reality Show," to be curated by Gina Occhiogrosso, gallery director at The Arts Center, will explore the ways in which boundaries between what is real and what is staged have become blurred in these days of "real" media such as reality TV and crime expose programs. The curator seeks work in all media that explores aspects of the real, such as real-time, realism, super-realism, hyper-realism and tromp l'oeil.
