"Call for Artists: Open Show for Ditigal Art and Photography"
2005-08-01 until 2005-08-28
Los Angeles Center For Digital Art
Los Angeles, CA, USA United States of America

LACDA announces our Un-Juried Competition: Snap to Grid. In our second annual exhibition of this kind participants each upload one image to be printed on high quality paper (8.5x11) and hung in a grid in our gallery. The show will be widely promoted and will include a reception for the artists. After the exhibition the images and artist information will be available to view in our artist portfolios. Artwork for future exhibits will be selected from the portfolios, and will also be available for review by area gallerists, curators and arts journalists. Everybody wins! Entry fee $30US. Proceeds benefit gallery programs.

Show is international, open to all geographical locations.

Entrants submit one JPEG file of original work up to 2mb. All styles of 2D artwork and photography where digital processes of any kind were integral to the creation of the images are acceptable. Digital video stills and screen shots of web/new media are acceptable.

Multiple entries are permitted. $30 registration fee for each additional image. Exhibit is limited to space available, early entry is advised.

Gallery Statement: Every year for 50 years the L.A. Municipal Gallery has held its "Open Call" exhibit where any artist can show up with their art and an entry fee (to benefit gallery programs) and the piece is shown. The Los Angeles Center For Digital Art decided to launch an international experiment of the same nature where the artists upload images that are printed and hung by the gallery. The hundreds of works are displayed in a grid like installation (reminiscent of postcard art shows of the 1980's) where every work submitted is exhibited. The usual (less than democratic) selection process where only the precious few are chosen is turned on its head in a curatorial anarchy where everyone gets to participate and the viewer is literally left to be the judge. The show represents a snapshot of a current moment in art history when digital imaging has reached the hands of the many, an age where culture belongs to the "mobblogers" around the globe. From Thailand to Texas, amateur to academic, beautiful to banal and beyond the monumental quantity and variety of "Snap to Grid" becomes an aesthetic experience where each individual piece adds to an agglomerative effect that has a life of its own.

Deadline for entries: August 28, 2005
