GM Design in Hickory, North Carolina is Call for Artists to participate in"Side Show - Freak Show - Creep Show". We've all heard the terms. What does this mean to you? What comes to mind? What do YOU consider a 'Freak of Nature"? What constitutes this label? This is an open call to artists of all mediums to challenge themselves to respond to the title of this show. Who can participate? Anyone in the world, all artists welcome, all mediums. Is there a fee? NO. There is no entry fee.
How many submissions per artist: Multiple submissions are welcome.
When is the deadline: All art must be received by October 15, 2008. Send anytime prior to the deadline.
What dimensions are acceptable: Anything that will go through the postal mail. Be creative! Be weird! Be a freak! Small, large, anything goes!
Where will the art be exhibited: All art and imagery will appear online with a grand opening on October 31, 2008. HALLOWEEN! FREAKY!
Will the show travel to various venues? YES! We are working on a traveling exhibition with multiple venues. You will be notified of the exhibitions and we wish to receive your permission to possibly make a Freak-Zine (a visual catalog of the submissions) that will be distributed to all artists (online version will be sent via email) and to others who request it. The 'Freak-Zine" will be a vital part of the traveling exhibition and its visual historical documentation.
Will my art be returned? No. The body of work in this show may possibly be accepted as part of a Permanent Collection of a museum. Therefore, it would NOT be returned to the artist.
Need inspiration? THINK: sword-swallowing, circus, fortune tellers, palm readers, voo-doo, Coney Island, NYC, sideshows, magic, freaks of nature, siamese twins, the bearded lady...see link below.
