The Olympia Arts Perspective presents:
VARIABLES: a weekly dialogue and exhibition of Art, Music, and Performances for the month of April.
Week 1: ‘Me + You’ is an exploration of the personal, autobiographical and relational. This weeks exhibition will be primarily rooted in showing work that takes individual experiences and makes them accessible for all.
Week 2: ‘Us + The Other’ is a survey of comparisons and contradictions. What makes an individual/Group/Nation an ‘Us’ or an ‘Other’? and from what perspective do those rules apply?
Week 3: ‘X+Y’ is a commentary on how those letters have created a binary across humanity. Not unlike Ones and Zeros, there are never-ending combinations. Breaking THROUGH the Gender Binary.
Week 4: ‘Space +Place’ is a focus on what is around us. From the walls that shelter us to the water that sustains us; how do we nurture our environments? how do we abuse them? And what is there, that we do not see?
For each week there will be panels, discussion groups, and critiques. The hope is that each artist gets a chance to speak about their work, have a discussion about their work, and also get feedback from their peers and audience.
When submitting work, please keep in mind that if your work is chosen it is highly suggested that you make it to as many of the panels, discussions and critiques as possible. If you are not a local artist, we would still like you to have a panel and possibly a critique through the technological magnificence of SKYPE.
We are accepting submissions of all mediums: photography, video, Audio, installation, painting, sculpture, live performance, and the list goes on. When submitting please specify which week you feel your work pertains to, as well as a brief artist statement.
For video work or video documentation, make clips no longer then 4 minutes.
For images, submit no more then 6 JPG or PDF files.
For Audio, make clips no longer then 4 minutes.
DEADLINE: March 15, 2011
