Art in Odd Places

Deadline: May 14, 2010, midnight (EMAIL)

Art in Odd Places (AIOP) A project of GOH Productions
Along 14th Street New York City from Avenue C to the Hudson River
New York, New York
October 1-10, 2010

Art in Odd Places (AIOP) invites artists working across disciplines to propose projects for the festival's sixth installment.  Taking place along 14th Street from Avenue C to the Hudson River in New York City, we encourage proposals that explore this  location's rich history, configuration, and heterogeneous communities. The forthcoming edition of AIOP is informed by various interpretations of the term CHANCE, including proposition, luck, randomness, risk, and opportunity.

With emerging formats of communication, our culture has become a fertile ground for broad intersections between individuals, ideas and situations. This has resulted in unpredictable exchanges, relinquishment of control, surprise collaborations, and instances of spatial revelation.

AIOP 2010: CHANCE intends to provide passersby with a new perspective of an otherwise familiar environment through Site-specific installations, social and spatial interventions, video and audio projects, performance, new media, and other inventive practices. In addressing the distinct manifestations of chance, the festival aims to broaden the public’s outlook on art, city dwelling, and social conventions.


1. Use imaginative approaches in engaging public spaces.
2. Move through crowds of pedestrians and vehicles continuously and effortlessly.
3. Consider 14th Street’s landmarks, neighborhood, multifaceted industries and communities.
4. Be presented in both anticipated and unpredictable locations.


1. Allow crowds to gather around the work.
2. At any time block the sidewalk and/or street.


1. Press opportunities.
2. Website with artist’s project info, bio and link to artist’s own website.
3. Program guides with project information distributed throughout Lower Manhattan and beyond.
4. Project consultation.
