OPEN CALL: Proposals for projects at Gallery Skolska

Sep 05, 2007 7:32 pm
DEAI/setkání Association hereby opens a call for submissions for proposals of individual or collective artistic exhibition projects for Gallery Školská 28 during the year 2008–9 and a call for submissions for project proposals for artist's residencies at Open Studios Prague Dolní Počernice, an international residency program for artists and theoreticians for the year 2008–09. Deadline for submissions is October 1, 2007.

The kind of proposals sought for exhibitions and residencies is fairly open in terms of theme, medium, and the activities involved in proposed projects. However, the proposal must take into account the technical and functional limitations of the space, as well make sense within the space's historical exhibition record and sensibilities. This call is open to both Czech and foreign artists. For projects where long-term preparation and studio space are required, it is possible to combine a Gallery Školská 28 exhibition with an Open Studios artist's residency.

Projects will be evaluated by a five-member panel that will include: Prof. Pavel Baňka; Prof. Miloš Šejn, PhD.; the artist Krištof Kintera; Školská curator Dana Recmanová; and one other member yet to be determined. Selected projects will be furnished with physical space and technical and administrative support, according to the needs of the project and its creator(s). Selected projects will be entered into the Program Plan for 2008-09, whose realization is contingent on the financial resources of the year-long program. The panel's selections will be announced on the web page on November 30, 2007.

Submissions must include a brief description of the proposed project, information on the artist's previous work, including images or any other relevant documentation. In the case of artist's residencies, the artist's preferred time period and length of time for the residency should be included. Submissions may be personally delivered Wed.–Fri. from 1 to 5 p.m. to Communication space Školská 28; or by post to this address: O.S. DEAI/setkání (KP Školská 28), Dlouhá 33, 110 00 Praha 1, Czech Republic. Please clearly mark your parcel with the designation "2008." We do not accept proposals by e-mail. Your portfolio will be returned to you following the selection of projects, not later than the end of November. Please direct any questions concerning this call or the programs mentioned in it to Dana Recmanová by e-mail or personally by appointment., tel. (+420) 731 150 179.
