The work submitted, or proposed, must meet two basic criteria: 1) the work must sample, borrow, appropriate, remix other media and 2) the work must somehow be critical of consumer culture, politics, celebrity, etc. The art can be 2d, paint, 3d (sculpture, glass, etc.), video, audio, project, etc. . We will be setting up for the show Nov. 16 at noon.
The goal is for the art to utilize the legal concept of fair use, which allows for borrowing other works to directly critique them, for public benefit, and as long as the new work doesn't replace the market for the old.
Submissions will be reviewed by the FIG students, and the opening show curated by them. This call for submission is open to everybody. While the opening will be held 6:30-9pm in Global Scholars Hall #123 on the University of Oregon campus, we are hoping to show the exhibit in other spaces in Eugene and Oregon. We will have a screening portion of the show at 7:30pm. There will be refreshments and DJs to provide music. The vibes will be right!
We are asking that you submit a proposal, a draft or mockup, etc. digitally using this form.
Here are some basic requirements for the pieces:
*If doing a digital 2d image, we will need to print it. We MAY have some budget for large format printing, but you should design you piece for poster size (27x41) and 300dpi. Other large format is fine, and if you have a reason (artistic) for a smaller format that will be acceptable too.
*Video submissions should not be longer than 2 minutes.
*Audio submissions should be no longer than 2 minutes.
For inquiries, please contact Andre´ Sirois: email@example.com and put "Critical Art Show" in the subject line.
