Even though InLight Richmond 2010 isn’t scheduled until October, 1708 Gallery is already on the look-out for proposals for works to be featured in this years exhibition.
From the press release:
1708 Gallery invites emerging and established artists, national and international, working in all media and disciplines (including performance art) to submit proposals. Preferences will be given to proposals that involve, are inspired by, investigate, or interpret themes of light, from light as medium to light as an abstract idea. Existing work, as well as proposals for new projects will be considered. Deadline for entries is June 21, 2010.
Potential sites for installations and performance work include various public interior and exterior spaces including sidewalks, storefronts, buildings, walls, entry ways, atriums, street corners, etc., in the Historic Shockoe Slip neighborhood of downtown Richmond.
The work for the exhibition will be selected by Amanda McDonald Crowley, the Executive Director of Eyebeam in New York, the leading not-for-profit art and technology center in the United States. She is a cultural worker, curator and facilitator who specializes in creating new media and contemporary art events and programs that encourage cross-disciplinary practice, collaboration and exchange. She moved to New York in October 2005, relocating from her native Australia where she had been based while working nationally and throughout Europe and Asia.
