Bring to Light: Nuit Blanche New York 2012


Deadline:
Fri Jul 13, 2012 23:59

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Project Proposals are due by Friday, July 13th at 11:59pm via the
Online Submission Form at
www.bringtolightnyc.org

Bring to Light is a site-specific contemporary art exhibition that illuminates the streets, parks, and industrial waterfront of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Bring to Light is New York’s “nuit blanche,” part of a global network of locally organized nighttime art festivals.

An investigation of the tension and transformation underway throughout the New York waterfront, Bring to Light seeks proposals from artists exploring innovative approaches to temporary public art that engages the built environment and re-imagines public space. Through this unique annual intervention, the streetlights and everyday buzz of the sidewalks, parks, and piers of the industrial waterfront are replaced by the ephemeral glow of interactive installations and contemplative spectacle. Layering time-based media with architectural space, Bring to Light illuminates historic warehouses and contested shorelines as sites teeming with creative potential. Unexpected immersive environments invite a range of engagement--from active participation to quiet spectatorship.

Artists are encouraged to carefully consider the use of illumination and address how the work may function in its outdoor context. Limited indoor sites may also be available. While we accept submissions from artists working in any medium, work presented at Bring to Light commonly includes:

-Film, Video or Image Projection
-Installation, Sculpture and Interactive Environments -Sound and A/V Performance
-Mobile Applications

Proposals will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
-Site-specificity or responsiveness--work that is designed to engage and transform its location
-Articulation of a strong concept, rooted in a demonstrated artistic practice
-Artist’s ability and preparedness to execute work as proposed
-Attention to the relationship of the artwork to the spectator/participant
-Innovation in content, technology or process

Submissions will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and all proposals must be submitted by 11:59 PM on July 13th for consideration.

Festival Date: Saturday October 6, 2012
