CALL TO ARTISTS FOR SUBMISSIONS

EXHIBITION: STRAIGHT TO VIDEO

 

Exhibition description

This exhibition focuses on several socially engaged art initiatives that are performed publically with the explicit intention of existing as video in their final iteration. The use of video documentation has often been a strategy relied upon by performance artists to present their work in a secondary setting beyond that of the original context. Many contemporary socially engaged artists are also adopting the use of video, not just as a tool for documentation, but as a catalyst to bring members of the public into participation with each other and the lens itself. The artists present video as a strategy to create social-engaged artworks that place equal value on the public-process and the filmed result.
 

The exhibition will take in the Dorothy W. & C. Lawson Reed Jr. Gallery located in the DAAP, Aronoff Complex and takes place as part of FOTOFOCUS 2016 and in conjunction with the Mid-America College Art Association conference taking place at DAAP, University of Cincinnati.

 

Exhibition dates
Installation- Sept. 26th-30th
Runs- October 2nd- November 23rd
Reception- Thursday, October 27th
