CALL FOR ENTRIES
Something About Nothing
March 30th through May 5th, 2009
The Ohio State University at Marion Wayne and Geraldine Kuhn Fine Arts Gallery is pleased to announce an open call for entries for artist works in all media for its curated exhibition entitled “Something About Nothing”. As the title implies, the focus of the exhibition is the small, the every day, the mundane, and even the concept of nothingness itself. Appropriate works for this exhibition make these notions grandiose, copiously or exhaustively explore such subjects and activities, or present the unconsidered, the diminutive, the ephemeral or the common.
Application Deadline: Received by Monday, March 9th. Notified of acceptance by Monday, March 16th.
All forms of work will be considered, including audio and video works; two- and three-dimensional works; performances; and installations. Work should be submitted on a non-returnable CD-ROM, in either of the following formats:
1. A Mac formatted PowerPoint presentation consisting of no more than 12 slides, to include ten image slides and two administrative text slides. The first slide should be expressly text, listing the artist's name, address, phone number and email.
The second slide should contain a numbered slide list for the works submitted, including the title of the works; the media; the dimensions; the year of its creation; the duration, if video or audio; and manner of display (projection, on floor, headphone, pedestal, wall hanging, etc). The remaining ten slides should be visual images of artworks, or documentation of installations or artist actions. Embedded audio or video clips cannot total more than ten minutes in combined length.
2. A single file folder containing files numbered from 01 - 10. Files can be JPEG or JPG images, each compressed to no more than 2MB; AIFF or MP3 or QuickTime audio files; or QuickTime movies totaling no more than ten minutes in combined length. Submissions of this type should further include a one-page Word document with artist's name, address, phone number and email in the header, followed by a numbered slide list for the works submitted including the title of the work; the medium; the dimensions; the date of its creation; the duration, if video or audio; and manner of display (projection, on floor, headphone, pedestal, wall hanging, etc).
All artists must also submit a brief artist’s statement explaining how your artwork relates to the concept of the show, 500 words maximum, as well as a one-page CV or artist bio.
