Open call: Intersection for the Arts (San Francisco) Fall 2006 Exhibition - "Terror?"

Tue Aug 15, 2006 00:00 - Wed Jul 26, 2006


---------- Forwarded message ----------

Intersection for the Arts is launching a building-wide exploration of
how each one of us experiences and understands fear and terror, which
will culminate in a visual arts exhibition opening September 2006. There
are a number of ways in which you can participate - through contributing
your artwork to Intersection's first open call juried show in over a
decade, to sharing your stories or your experiences.

Intersection's Fall 2006 Exhibition - "Terror?"

Are you scared? What are you scared of? How does fear immobilize or
control you and the world around you? What does fear cost? Where does
personal fear intersect with larger societal and political messages of
terror? These are some of the questions we are interested in exploring
through Terror?, a networking experiment investigating how people all
over the world experience fear and how it affects our lives. Utilizing
the internet as a starting place, this project is about searching for
new and true definitions for a word that has become all too pervasive.
Where are we now - five years from September 11, 2001? How much do we
really know about what people around the world are experiencing? What
kind of a here and now do we have? And, what kind of future? How do we
actively and hopefully break through media distortions, manufactured
information and a seemingly constant war agenda? Selected entries will
be exhibited at Intersection for the Arts in San Francisco, California,
U.S. for two months beginning on the 5-year Anniversary of 9/11 -
September 11 through November 11, 2006.

Please include a self addressed stamped envelope with proper postage for
the return of your work. You will be notified by email of your
involvement in the exhibition, so please be sure to provide a valid
e-mail address with your materials. Intersection is not responsible for
returning works submitted without a self addressed stamped envelope.
Following the exhibition, selected works may be passed along to other
non-governmental international organizations and entities in order to
continue to develop and deepen networks. The artist agrees to provide
for the return of work, including adequate provisions for shipping costs
and insurance. Local artists in Northern California can arrange to drop
off for consideration and pick up at the close of the exhibition work
directly at Intersection. There is no entry fee for submitting work for

It is our hope that this experiment can live and grow beyond the walls
of Intersection for the Arts. If you have ideas about how to continue
this exploration in your own gallery or space or in a completely
different way, please contact us at

Works submitted should be 2-D works (painting, illustration, design,
collage, photography, printmaking, Xerox, textile) no larger than 11
inches high by 8.5 inches wide (or for international entries, standard
A4 paper, 297mm high by 210mm wide). Digital submissions will only be
accepted in PDF format, and must be formatted to print no larger than 11
inches high by 8.5 inches wide (or for international entries, standard
A4 size, 297mm high by 210mm wide). We will accept up to 5 works per
artist for consideration.

Submissions must be received at Intersection for the Arts by Tuesday
August 15, 2006.

Selected entries will be exhibited at Intersection for the Arts in San
Francisco, California, United States from September 11 through November
11, 2006.

Are you scared? What are you scared of? Do you ever feel immobilized,
paralyzed? Why? How does fear control you and the world around you? What
does fear cost? Where does personal fear intersect with larger societal
and political messages of terror? These are some of the questions we are
interested in exploring through Terror?, an international
interdisciplinary project investigating how each one of us experiences
fear and how it affects our lives.

Please send us your thoughts and reactions to the above questions. With
the Terror? Story Project, we aim to collect, reflect upon and
incorporate your responses to these questions as we prepare to open a
major installation in solemn commemoration of the 5th Anniversary of
September 11, 2001. Your response may be woven into Constructed Fears,
an Open Process Series event on Wednesday, August 9, 2006 designed to
involve as many people as we can in the visioning for this important
project which will open on September 11, 2006.

We hope to collect and share answers & feedback to the above questions
via theatrical readings and performances by local artists. With our Open
Process Series, we hope also to democratize the artistic process by
inviting as many people to contribute and help shape the ideas as we can.

We are looking to hear from as many people and share as many stories and
as possible for this first event surrounding Terror?
