Last Call for Taking Part!

The latest call for work from ATHICA, the Athens Institute for Contemporary Art here in Athens, GA, closes in just two days—on October 6. It sounds exciting; the show will be composed of works that involve auditor participation, whether ongoing in the gallery space or as part of the art-making process. So, if you have ideas you can shoot their way, or if you’ve been “getting one together” for some time now, put that procrastination aside and send those proposals in! Here’s the skinny:

Call for Taking Part

Deadline: October 6, 2010

Run Dates: January 22 - March 6, 2011

Curator: Brigette Thomas

Featured Artist: Michael Lease (Send Me the Pillow that You Dream On and other projects)

Assistant Curator: Sheena Varghese

ATHICA seeks submissions from artists who request the participation of others as a key element of their work. Artists may pose questions, request submissions or provide instructions for participants as part of their creative process.

We invite artists who engage others as contributors through dialogue as well as action. Works may be interactive, but the participatory element need not take place during the exhibition.

Multimedia, web-based, performance and installation works are encouraged, in addition to traditional media.

Travel/shipping stipends may be available (funding decisions are on a case-by-case basis).
