ONLINE CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: 7th ANNUAL PIXEL POPS! 2011 Montmartre, Paris + Copenhagen, Denmark. SUBMISSION DEADLINE:31 July 2011.
PixelPops 2011, curated by Philip Tonda Heide, will take place TPTP art space in Montmartre, Paris and simultaneously in a yet unknown location in Copenhagen. It will consist of video-performances accessible to the public every night during 2 weeks in October.
The work-title of this years exhibit is "Performance From Far Away". With this we seek to make a program that explores performances presented through the format of video; to play with and question both mediums (performance and video) and to encourage dialogue between the artist and the public. This dialogue will be present in the performance videos themselves, but also on a blog where the dialogue can continue in the form of comments from the audience which can turn into written conversations/discussions between the artist and the viewer.
Artists can participate with performance-videos of various duration
(max 5 minutes). The performances should be made as and for the video format. The idea is not to show merely documentation of performances, even though there might also be space for a few of those in certain cases. There is also the possibility to do live performances in one of the hosting venues, which will be video recorded and also shown in the partner city.
Online submissions only - here.
