Call for Proposals:Beall Center for Art and Technology


Deadline:
Fri Sep 01, 2006 00:00

The Beall Center for Art and Technology seeks projects of high artistic merit that use technology in innovative ways. We offer honorarium and project costs of up to $20,000, to realize the project in our 2500 sqf space. We are also interested in collaborating with other institutions to fund projects of larger scale. We are currently soliciting proposals for exhibition years 2007 and 2008. The proposals will be reviewed in November of 2006 by the Beall Center Curatorial Review Committee, and artists notified in early Winter of 2007.

The Beall Center produces exhibitions and performances in the visual arts, theater, dance, and music, and particularly seeks works that successfully integrate new forms or uses of technology with artistic production or performance. In addition, as the Beall Center has an exceptionally well- developed and flexible infrastructure, and knowledgeable staff that is found in very few art and technology centers, preference will be given to works that can not easily be displayed or performed elsewhere.

Eligibility
Artists, curators, or institutions are eligible to submit proposals. Priority is given to cross-disciplinary projects. Artists or organizations that have previously received funding from the Beall Center must wait at least two years before reapplying. Women and artists of color are encouraged to apply.

Available Facilities
The Beall Center is a 2500 square foot black box with a highly configurable network grid, and connectivity to gigabit speed Ethernet. See OFacilityO http://beallcenter.uci.edu for additional information.

Deadline for Application:October 20, 2006
Award Notification: Winter 2007

7) Copy of any matching awards or copy of funding request for external and internal sources.

Priority will be given to projects with supplemental funding.
8) Preliminary visual diagrams indicating installation concepts, in electronic format (pdf).
