OPEN CALL: Electric Lab

May 22, 2007 4:59 pm
In the fall of 2007, Exit Art will present Electric Lab. This exhibition is dedicated to the scientist Nicola Tesla, who wanted to provide the entire world with free access to electricity. As Tesla discovered, electricity is one of life’s most fundamental forces; it courses through the heart and powers our computers. Today, the shortage and high cost of electricity is a pressing contemporary issue. For Electric Lab, we are asking artists to envision solutions to the impending electricity crisis by creating works that imagine alternative sources of electricity, suggest new ways to access electricity, and establish scenarios in which to experience the power of electricity. Proposals due June 15, 2007.

How to Apply:
Proposals may be for work in any medium. Please submit a one page description of your project idea: a sketch of the proposed project; a resume; and documentation of your previous work (10 slides or images on CD, please send images at lowest resolution so they open quickly, or a 3-5 minute NTSC VHS video or DVD). Please include a self addressed stamped envelope for the return of your work. You will be notified by email of your involvement in the exhibition so please include an email address with your materials. Exit Art is not responsible for returning works submitted without a SASE.
