Artists Wanted Competition


Artists Wanted – an open call for submissions.

The current Art World is rife with uninspired work. Too often artists are elevated based on who they know instead of the quality of their work. Our goal is to up-end that process.

Artists Wanted is a new and ongoing program designed to promote the great undiscovered artists of our time. Those selected will receive $2007 cash, an inclusion in our annual publication, and a solo show at the 3rd Ward gallery in Brooklyn. Runners-up will be listed and linked on the website and have the possibility of being featured in our publication. Submission deadline: Sept. 21st. Submission fee: $25 for 3 images. No previous exposure necessary. We want the best, most talented, undiscovered artists. We want you.

All information about submission available through www.artistswanted.org.

Crossings and Currents: An Interview with Margot Lovejoy


The CONFESS project is an interesting site.

OPPORTUNITY

VISIONARY DRAWINGS


Deadline:
Thu Jan 15, 2009 00:00

We would like you to submit a drawing that reflects one of a number of categories to be collected under the theme, Visionary Drawings. The collection will be compiled into a book format that will be presented in an upcoming museum exhibition. Drawings can be made in any medium, and should convey a dwelling/structure/architectural concept.

Questions to consider
What is the function, who will use it?
Where do these ideas originate -an historic context, a material, a need?

Categories
Choose a category from the following list, or write in your category if it is not represented:
Adaptation/Re-use, Survivalist Encampment, Reconstruction, Mis-use, Micro-community Spaces, Fort, Techno-sustainable, Radical Lifestyle Housing, Mobile, Nature Habitat, Critical Intervention, Medical/Healing Facility, Interstitial Space, Worship, Clandestine Space, Pavilion, Utilities, Museum/Exhibition, Other\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_.

Object
The project will seek to be as inclusive as possible, to represent a multiplicity in concept and vision, fantasy and innovation. The book will initially be situated for display adjacent to an architectural incursion into a museum, yet it will function as an independent, portable archive. Drawing is of primary interest, and can include notation or diagram as long as the format is maintained.
