The next Synthetic Zero show at BronxArtSpace, "Looking In/Looking Out" will be co-curated by Emily Roberts-Negron and Mitsu Hadeishi. We are looking for visual art, performance, experimental video, music, readings, dance, or other work for the show. The theme of the show is described below; please feel free to submit any and all work related to the theme closely or remotely. The submission deadline is October 10.
Looking in: I look at you, but I see a mixture of me and you, a facade of our reflections. When we look in on someone or some thing, we imagine what we see doesn't notice our gaze, yet the act of looking forever changes what we see as well as ourselves. Can we ever really be separate from what we see? Can we ever really touch what we see?
Looking out: A romantic gesture beyond ourselves. We look out at what appears to be a/the/our world, surrounding us in sequence. But its expanse is indefinite. How far can we see before the lines begin to blur?
Can we see without looking?
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with information about your submission; links, images, artist statement. If you would like to submit video, please do NOT send DVDs — send links to videos on Vimeo, YouTube, or download links for video files.
If you need to call: 718 772-4961; however, email is preferred.
