OPEN CALL: New York, New York, New York

New York, New York, New York
So nice we named it thrice.
December 14, 2007 through January 2008
Deadline: October 1

This is an open call for artists working in all media to participate in Flux Factory’s Winter 2007 show, New York, New York, New York.

New York, New York, New York is an interactive, multimedia installation consisting of a large model of New York City inspired loosely by the Panorama at the Queens Museum. It will be located in five separate spaces (one in each borough). Instead of being an exact replica to scale of the city of New York, this project offers a mental map, a replica of an imaginary New York. The goal of the show is to explore the architectural and conceptual elements of everyday space. It is an investigation into the collective unconscious of the cultural capital of the planet.

Each artist will contribute a building, a landmark, a street, an avenue, a block, a park, a neighborhood, an expressway, a bridge, an island, an airport—one or several elements of the urban environment. All of these individual works will be combined to produce a cohesive yet chaotic installation, a multimedia, scale model version of the city.

We want artists not to think so much about New York as it actually is, but New York as a possible space. We encourage participants to explore the city's great myths and urban legends, grandiose unrealized projects, future visions from the past, as well as individual and personal experiences of the city.

Models will be installed on the gallery floor, keep in mind that each project needs to be integrated with the rest of the show. Think of your production as a single piece in a larger puzzle. Scales can vary between 1:200 and 1:2000.

Please send us a CV as well as a less than one page descriptive text and a couple of visuals. Please include specific dimensions and materials. Documentation of past relevant work will also be accepted. Also (and importantly), please be very specific about the location of your piece: specify the Borough and the exact neighborhood you want to work on.
