Call for performative art work for Mendel Art Gallery

LUGO is seeking submissions for the presentation of a performative artwork to take place during this year’s event. The selected artist will present a work that will unfold during the evening throughout the Gallery spaces. The work will be conceived in the spirit of this year’s event –hand-made, heart-warming, evocative, collaborative and engaging.

Artists working in all disciplines will be considered. Performance art, dance, theatre, literature, sculpture, audio may be particularly well suited for this venue. For example, artists may engage with party participants to collect source material for a collaborative poem, an audio art piece, or a sculptural installation. The presentation could be a finished work – a dance or performance – or provide an opportunity to workshop a new piece. The artist must demonstrate the ability to execute the proposed project. A small honorarium will be paid.

To apply, email a brief description of the proposed activity (one or two paragraphs), a list of any technical support you may need, documentation of your work, and a résumé. Feel free to include additional support material including photographs, a script, video or links to the web. The deadline for submissions is December 15. We will accept online submissions only, merci.

To submit a proposal or for more information, contact Troy Gronsdahl: tgronsdahl@mendel.ca
