Artspace: Call for Site-Specific Exterior Projects

Deadline: August 30, 2012 (RECEIVE)

Call for Site-Specific Exterior Projects
Instructions Not Included: Tinker, Hack, Tweak

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

Artspace is looking for proposals for temporary works to go on the outside of our building from November 2012 to late January 2013 as part of the exhibition Instructions Not Included: Tinker, Hack, Tweak.

This exhibition constructs a visual discussion and exploration of the creative possibilities in readymade culture. Throughout the project artists will offer homemade recipes and shared ideas for the recontextualizing of everyday goods to radical ends. INI creates a forum for discussing industrial design, our daily environment, and the objects we need and with which we surround ourselves. The exhibit explores the crossover between aesthetics, industrial design, “ready-mades”, the instructible and maker movements, craft, guerilla /Graffiti protest work, mass-production, customization, and the DIY movement.

We are interested in having—but are not limited to:
• A yarn-bombing project on the benches, mailbox, or lampposts.
• A light-based work, particularly one with a message (positive and political a plus) about art, creativity, or making
• A sound work for our entryway.
• Unique works to flank—without blocking—our windows and sidewalks, or our two entryways, such as banners, flags, projected works, or other pieces that would be durable enough to resist the elements but would not damage the building façade.
• We are also soliciting suggestions for work to be put up in our large inside office window, facing out onto Orange Street.

All works must be installed and dismantled by the artist. Artspace will assist as possible, but the burden of logistics rests on the individual creator.

Selected artists will receive an honorarium, the amount of which is determined based on the scope of the project.

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