OPPORTUNITY | CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
Videorover: Season 8 – Open Call
NURTUREart is currently accepting proposals for the 8th season of Videorover. NURTUREart’s dedicated video program, Videorover aims at becoming an ever-expanding forum for emerging artists working in video.
This season we are seeking proposals that focus on video as installation. We are therefore encouraging submissions from video artists concerned with the many variables of how video content is reproduced and presented. We will consider how the video is engaged with the gallery space and its context, looking for works presented as installations, as well as ones referencing such issues internally, as part of the video’s own narrative and visual articulation.
Videorover: Season 8 will be exhibited in the main gallery space for a three week event during which different video-installations will be presented via separate openings. The selected works will be separated into smaller groups, with an emphasis on the co-activation of the space. In this respect, we are looking for work from artists that are interested in or open to the spirit of collaboration. After the formal exhibition, the videos will then move the the Videorover project space, where they will be displayed on a rotation of one video per day for the remainder of the season. For this reason, there should also be a version of the video, or a related work available for when the works move to the Videorover project space.
The subject matter of this call is open. Keep in mind that although we are dedicated to realizing these projects through creative institutional support, our budget and equipment is limited.
Deadline: April 21 at Midnight
