Fugitive Projects announces an open call to artists for video of one minute or less.
Last year’s Fugitive Video Project 2007 was an invitational and included emerging and established artists whose collective resume includes collaborations with Tom Waits, Win Wenders and the Vienna Philharmonic, participation in such major exhibitions as the Whitney Biennial, Berlin Biennial, The Sundance Film Festival, Cannes, and whose works are in the collections of the MOMA in New York, The Whitney Museum of American Art and many other institutions in the North America and Europe. Participants hailed from The United States, France, Switzerland, Germany, Serbia, Costa Rica, Cuba, China, Turkey, Austria, Brazil and England and included artists Kristin Lucas, Casey Reas, Bert Rodriguez, Hernan Bas, Dominic DeJoseph, Matt Freedman, Scott Reeder, Charles De Meaux and Huber.Huber. This program played at art venues and theaters across the U.S. as well as Dublin, Ireland, Cairo, Egypt, Basel, Switzerland and Banff, Canada. It is still traveling to new venues.
This year Fugitive Projects has set aside 20 spaces for open call video submissions to join invited participants into Fugitive Video Project 2009 via this open call.
Fugitive Projects encourages submissions that engage in a contemporary dialogue investigating concerns of video and film inside, as well as outside, of metropolitan art centers. All artists are encouraged to submit work in this open call to join established video artists who are already committed to the project. Fugitive Projects expects an even more comprehensive world tour for the Fugitive Video Project 2009. New additions to our Video Project 2009 already include Steven Vitiello, Daniel Canty, Eliane Rutishauser, Stephanie Rothenberg, Jenna Gribbon, Melody Owen, Bill Daniel as well as many artists from Fugitive Project 2007 and many new contributors to come.
Open Call Submission Guidelines: We will accept NTSC formatted Hi-Resolution Quicktime and MPEG data files on disks OR mini-dv tapes. Please include contact info and a resume either on a disk or in hardcopy. Accepted works will be notified by email and posted on our web-site in early 2009. Work not accepted can be destroyed to protect the artists’ copy-write or held in our archives for future consideration. Please tell us your preference in the release document downloadable from our site: http://fugitiveprojects.com/video-2009/.
All videos will be reviewed by Fugitive Projects, an artist run advocacy, beehive and curatorial entity run by a 12-member Board of Directors. Thank you for your interest.
