Contemporary Arts Center

Las Vegas, NV
October 14 – 17, 2010

The Contemporary Arts Center is currently accepting submissions for “Off The Strip,” a 4-day new genres art festival held in Las Vegas from October 14-17th, 2010. The CAC seeks submissions for performance, media, and digital works, including installations. We are accepting submissions of recent work or proposals for new work. We encourage submissions that will be particularly relevant within the context of Las Vegas or Nevada, though we are not seeking Las Vegas-centric works per se.

Proposals should address the relevance of your submission within this unique social, economic, and popular cultural environment. "Off the Strip" will take place at multiple venues including the CAC gallery, an alternative theater space, a sci-fi center located in Commercial Center (one of Las Vegas' first "strip malls"), and the showroom of the Aruba Hotel's Thunderbird Lounge in downtown Las Vegas. Information on the locations will be posted on our website in the next month. We also encourage artists to research Las Vegas and propose work for alternate locations in the downtown vicinity.

There is a $10 processing fee per proposal.

Submissions should include:

1. A short proposal (outlining concept but also descriptive of presentation)
2. An equipment list or special presentation requirements
3. Work samples and supporting materials (see below) may be sent on a cd or dvd or emailed to to with OTS in the subject heading.
4. CV with contact information and artist's statement

*Work samples can include 10-20 jpegs (no larger than 1 MB via email please) or mp3s on a CD (installation views/details or performance documentation/details), NTSC video samples on DVD or links to websites/podcasts.

Selected artists will be notified via email by June 14th.
