Pre/amble: A Festival of Art and Psychogeography

Pre/amble is a two day festival of art and psychogeography which takes as a starting point the exploration of the city, an interest in dialogue surrounding methods of psychogeography, and the intersection of psychogeography with contemporary art practices.

Pre/amble will take place in and around the Western Front Artist Run Centre in Vancouver, Canada, November 1 - 2, 2003.

Pre/amble is focused on presenting works through talks and lectures as well as creating a forum for the presentation of artworks that take place in the space of the city.

Proposals may therefore fall into either ONE, or BOTH, of the following categories:

1 // T A L K S: Artists and researchers give presentations about past works, works in progress, or works that will be included in the event portion of Pre/amble, that engage the subject of psychogeography, including but not limited to mapping, mobile technologies, digital/analogue hybrids, moblogging, WiFi, warchalking/wardriving, interventions in public space, audio projects, or other fields of art as they intersect with situationist activity and/or psychogeography.

2 // W A L K S : Artists and researchers present works that engage participants in projects or experiments that take place in public urban spaces, whether performative events, derives, fieldwork, tours, participatory actions, audio installation, GPS drawing, generative and/or algorithmic walks, or other kinds of events that intersect with situationist activity and/or psychogeography.

Please send us:
-project proposals for walks, talks, drives, derives, psychogeographical events, lectures, presentations of past works or works in progress or works that you would like to show at Pre/amble
-artworks and events that take situationist activity and psychogeography as a starting point
-projects can cover a broad range of media and subject matter including but not limited to mapping, GPS drawing, mobile technologies, WiFi, digital/analogue hybrids, moblogging, performance, participatory action, experiments and interventions in public space, audio works, experimental cartography, fieldwork, tours, warchalking/wardriving, data movement, generative and/or algorithmic walks, and other fields of art as they intersect with situationist action and/or psychogeography.
