CALL FOR ENTRIES - 60 SECONDS OF PLAY…..

Aquaspace and Drain magazine, the journal for contemporary art and culture, (www.drainmag.com) invite submissions for one-minute audio, video and time-based works as part of the 60 seconds of Play series. The screening will be presented as part of the launch for Issue #06 - ‘PLAY’ of Drain.

The works in 60 seconds of Play question how playful energy might be a driving force in art and society.

Drawing attention to trials and errors, mischievousness, illusions, irregularities, pretences, and states of “make-believe” this series of shorts will bring together the familiar and unfamiliar. We welcome offbeat works that delve into how “play” operates as a sociopolitical force in creative practices. In exploring these qualities, this series encourages all contributors to visually and/or aurally experiment with their mediums and take a few risks!

This launch will take place in the Project room of Saltworks Gallery, Atlanta, Georgia (www.saltworksgallery.com).
LAUNCH DATE APRIL 22
SHOW DATES APRIL 22 - MAY 27
The series will also be presented at the Forum Gallery of Cranbrook Academy of Art (date TBA)

The launch will also include a live performance by sound artist Jason Wynne and a mobile exhibition curated by artist Michelle Barczak.
