Call for Proposals for NADA-Hudson – due July 20
Call to Participate
PAUSE invites submissions for Proposals for Engage Culture, a project to be exhibited at NADA-Hudson on July 28th and 29th.
How can an Artist impact a community?
What does this look like?
What is possible?
Proposals for Engage Culture is a project developed by PAUSE that promotes and displays the multitude of artistic ideas and concepts that have yet to or may never be produced. With a specific interest in socially centered practice, we wish to provide artists with an opportunity to present proposals for projects focused directly on community engagement and participation. NADA Hudson provides a unique context to exhibit a vast collection of possibilities for what could be, with an expressed desire is to locate audiences that wish to support this type of work.
For NADA Hudson, we are inviting artists throughout the Hudson Valley to submit project proposals that model artists as active participants in their communities. During the fair, these proposals will be displayed on a series of stands, where the audience will be invited to review them, vote for their favorite, record audio responses as a part of a radio broadcast, and should they feel so inclined, provide financial support to see the project realized. The proposals will also be documented for the web and made available through various online channels to further extend the reach of work.
In many ways, Proposals for Engage Culture is responding to the need for art and culture to have a more direct connection to the local community. In this case, our hope is to create a more connected, situated relationship between the artists and the local public, being a stimulus for new modes of cultural production. At PAUSE we are interested not solely in the object for sale, but the relationships and processes used in the creation of art.
To participate send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org
A 200 word professional proposal describing the project.
The name of the community in which you wish to work.
The cost of the project.
An image that visually describes the project.
Due July 20th, 2012 by 5pm
Notifications will take place July 22nd.
All genres are welcome.
From the larger group of submissions, a selection of 10 – 20 proposals will be made for NADA – Hudson. Those invited to participate may be asked to submit further information and pay a nominal $15 fee for inclusion. Those not included in NADA – Hudson will be invited to participate in an exhibition at a later date.
