BRIEF TO ARTISTS

 

Exchanges through performativity and practice
Mark Segal in partnership with Aspex, buy viagra Portsmouth and Syracuse University, buy New York is offering three artists, based in the south of England the opportunity to develop/adapt work for collaborative discussion and debate with three artists from upstate New York and three artists from Switzerland alongside curators Mark Segal, Jo Bushnell and Stephanie James. Professional development discussion on collaboration and debate on contemporary practice will take place during the preview week of the Venice Biennale and at Aspex in Portsmouth to include brief public presentations of work.

 

Please note that this project has a funding application to Arts Council England currently under consideration, and is therefore offered subject to a successful outcome. Funding for USA artists is confirmed while Swiss artists inclusion is the subject of separate applications in Switzerland.

 

Boîte-en-Valise ?Artists are asked to consider making and/or adapting new and/or existing work for transport in a normal sized suitcase, able to be transported as luggage on a normal flight/train/bus journey and taken from the suitcase for presentation without any fixing to walls, floors and/or ceilings of the venue. We anticipate works may be moving and/or still image, performative and/or sculptural in form. Moving image and multi media works should be presentable with equipment also accommodated within the suitcase (mini projectors, ipads, laptops etc.). This Boîte-en-Valise approach aims to encourage transportability of practice, the nurturing of collaboration and the cross fertilisation of artistic practice.

 

Fee: £1,000 per artist?
Plus travel, accommodation and stipends for Venice and Portsmouth.
