Call to Artists, Architects + Designers - Lab A.D.

In January 2011, the BECA Foundation will enter its 4th year of international arts programming. The 2nd annual BECA non-juried, open-registration, international exhibition of art + design. Registration is open until allocated spaces are full or December 31, 2010, whichever comes first. You may register to secure your space for either pre-existing work or for new work created after you register, as long as your work arrives at the exhibition space no later than January 17, 2011.

The purpose of this non-juried experimental, group exhibition is to further broaden exhibition opportunities and to discover and highlight new approaches by emerging contemporary artists, architects + designers as well as those who are more established but are stretching their work into unfamiliar territory. This exhibition provides an open opportunity in which to experiment freely. Registration is limited but guarantees exhibition.

The Lab AD exhibition is modeled after last year’s non-juried, experimental, open exhibition titled, 12x12x122. It was one of BECA’s most successful exhibitions to date in terms of attendance and online viewing. This Lab AD call to artists, architects + designers guarantees exhibition of their work to all those who are registered. Registration will remain open until allocated spaces are full or until December 31, 2010, whichever comes first. For Lab AD, we have made an effort to broaden the variety of acceptable works (including 2-D, 3-D and video) but with limited space we are only able to allocate a limited amount of size categories and all will be registered on a first come, first served basis.

All registered artists, architects + designers will have their works exhibited from February 4 - 18, 2011 at New Studio A.D. located at 312 Rosemont Ave NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico. There will be both an opening reception held on Friday, February 4, 2011 from 5 - 8pm during Albuquerque’s First Friday ArtsCrawl and also a closing reception held on Friday, February 18, 2011 from 5 - 8pm during Albuquerque’s Third Friday Downtown ArtsCrawl. There will be 20 artists, architects and/or designers selected from those exhibiting to have their works featured online at www.BECAICAD.org. Works are not required to conform to any particular medium, style, theme or concept. You may view complete registration info. posted at: http://www.becaicad.org/artist-designer-submissions.php
