Socrates Sculpture Park Seeking Applications

Long Island City's Socrates Sculpture Park is currently seeking applications for their 2009 cycle. There are four separate programs available -- an Emerging Artist Fellowship Program which provides a 2 to 6 month residency and financial assistance, a 2009 Spring exhibition entitled State Fair which will transform the park into a fairground, Open Space which supports the execution of individual projects, and their biennial of site-specific, temporary, interactive and ephemeral works Float. The latter seems particularly suited to many of the practices covered here on Rhizome (Jon Rubin and Shana Moulton are past participants), but all of these opportunities might potentially be relevant. Applications are due January 26, 2009. Visit their website or download the application for more information.
