LiveBox open call for “Subtitles” - a yearlong exploration of projects inspired by the writings of Edgar Allen Poe, Doris Lessing and Roald Dahl. Subtitles will be hosted by ThreeWalls Chicago, 3rd Fridays of the month beginning January 21, 2011

We are looking for video, new media, sonic and sound, performance, and literary work inspired by or evoking the writings of Poe, Lessing and Dahl. Each 3rd Friday will be unique combination of media, performance and readings.

Edgar Allen Poe, Doris Lessing and Roald Dahl followed their own paths, significantly influencing the genres they are noted for. Poe developed a theory of composition; theme or plot was subordinate to the construction of a single intense mood. Doris Lessing is known for both her radical writing on social issues and as a science fiction writer. Her novel The Golden Notebook is considered a feminist classic, but she would argue her most important work is Canopus in Argos a science fiction series. Roald Dahl is most known for his unsentimental and wickedly humorous children’s books, but he also wrote 60 adult short stories noted for their dark sense of humor and surprising endings.

Submissions will be received on an ongoing basis. If you have something we’d like to see it. Otherwise, start writing, filming and creating - surprise us. Send a one page description of your proposal and a URL link to your website, plus for sound and video include a link to a VIMEO or You Tube sample. cf@liveboxgallery.com

LiveBox Open Call


LiveBox Gallery Open Call: Notions of Wilderness

Open call for new media projects. “Notions of Wilderness” is an exhibition that will take place at Kasia Kay Art Projects, a commercial gallery located in Chicago’s principal setting for contemporary art galleries. The exhibition will include all mediums, this call is specifically for new media. Proposals must be received by April 1st 2007, the exhibition will take place June 2007.

The word wilderness is derived from the notion of wildness; uncultivated, uninhabited, in other words without human modification. The social and political realities of “nature verses economics” makes defining wilderness in the 21st Century ever more elusive. What is “wild”, what can be called “wilderness”, what is the measure of human “influence” that defines wildness? LiveBox is looking for compelling new media projects exploring aspects of wilderness. Please check the website (www.livebxogallery.com) for submission guidelines, or contact cf@liveboxgallery.com
