Open Call for Installation Art – BWAC Summer Show
July 28, 2018 through August 19, 2018
Deadline - June 22, 2018
This is an open Call for Submissions from artists all over the USA for an exhibit in our gallery – over 25,000 square feet of a Civil War-era warehouse on the Red Hook waterfront. With its trendy restaurants, bars, boutiques and billion-dollar view of the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor, it’s an exciting place to visit and EXHIBIT. The enormous space of the gallery affords us the opportunity to exhibit largework, and we welcome it.
Installation art is created and installed on the exhibition site, often incorporating materials or physical features on the site.
Installation art is usually a three-dimensional work that is site specific that transforms the perception of a space.
- It can be a Video Installation combining video technology with installation art and can include monitors and/or projectors, as well as live performance.
- It can be a Sound Installation (related to sound art and sound sculpture) and can include interactive art technology (computers, sensors, mechanical and kinetic devices), speakers, musical instruments or parts, as well as live performance.
- It can be Performance Art scripted or unscripted, random or carefully orchestrated; spontaneous or carefully planned with or without audience participation. The performance can be live or via media, the performer can be present or absent, but should involve four basic elements: Time, Space, The Performer’s Body or presence in a medium, and a relationship between the performer and the audience.
- It can be Interactive Art – A form of art that involves the spectator/audience in a way that allows the art to achieve its purpose or define it purpose/message and can include monitors, computers, sensors, video, mechanical and kinetic devices.
Proposals must be received by Friday June 22, 2018
