Artspace: Call for Connecticut based Artists

Deadline: August 30, 2012 (RECEIVE)

Call for Connecticut based Artists
Instructions Not Included: Tinker, Hack, Tweak

New Haven, CT
November 9, 2012 to January 17, 2013

Artspace is looking for artists/makers to participate in the exhibition Instructions Not Included: Tinker, Hack, Tweak, slated to run from November 2012 to late January 2013. For this call, we are looking for Connecticut based artists whose work explores cross-pollination between sculpture and functional objects/devices. Multi-media artists are encouraged to apply. While we will be exhibiting existing individual works in the gallery, this is a participatory project. We are looking for individuals open to collaborating during the event and who are interested in experimentation and expanding their practice in a fluid, game-like setting.

About the exhibition: (truncated)
Instructions Not Included constructs a visual discussion around the creative possibilities of readymade culture. The exhibition will serve as a forum for reexamining industrial design, our daily environment, and the objects that surround us.

Participation expectations: (truncated)
Artists will be asked to be in residence at least once a week to collaborate with the other INI artists on short term projects and to update their own bulletin boards with any images or texts they find interesting and appropriate to their thought process. Additionally, each artist will be asked to give one demonstration or workshop on the skill of his/her choice.

There will be a modest materials supply for those selected. Additionally, there will be a catalog produced and there will be a strong web-based component offering possibilities for interviews, interactions with the world at large, and other opportunities for learning and exposure.

Artists will be selected based on the quality of the work submitted, suitability to the theme of the exhibition, and in the interest of creating an interesting mix of media/genres within the whole group.

Artspace specializes in cutting edge contemporary art. We suggest that interested artists familiarize themselves with the venue before applying.
