CALL FOR ART PROJECTS
MILLENNIUM GALLERY: November 11, 2016
Deadline for submission: January 31, 2016
The PSF2016 in partnership with the Millennium Gallery – a joint effort of Faculty of Fine Arts of Lisbon University and Lusófona University – is calling for artists to submit an artwork to be presented at the group exhibition of the Post-Screen: International Festival of Art, New Media and Cybercultures.
The PSF2016: Intermittence+Interference is focused in the themes of photography, film, museology and public space, in connection with the idea of post-screen underlying the festival’s name and purpose, which is to generate a dialogue between the artistic and technological fields, through multidisciplinary studies that contribute critically both to research and artistic practice.
Starting from the three areas already appointed, this project will address a set of topics related with the media, the proliferation and the unfolding of images in cyberspace, the new modalities of screens and their implications in spectatorship and audiences. The substantial increase of urban screens is also a potential field of investigation and reflection on new forms of interaction and collaborative environments in public spaces. The projection of light on urban surfaces arises, largely, as a way to create spaces for collective critical thought through which the video serves as a means for communication and not for consumption, often conveying a sense of political inquiry.
In addition to these aspects, issues related with algorithms, the decoding of images through different outputs, or the new imagery offered, for example, by satellite images, or even the possibilities generated by the virtual reality, are some of the themes to be addressed in this second edition of the PSF, taking into consideration new proposals and approaches which may arise during the course of the project.
Artists may submit an art project/artwork to be presented at the virtual gallery of the festival.
Submissions are accepted in various genres, such as:
• Installations (interactive, site-specific, etc.)
• Multiple projections
• Immersive environments
• Visual Arts
Before submitting please read carefully the Artists Guidelines and the Rules and Regulation provided in our website.
Artworks will be evaluated through a single blind selection process by the Curatorial Commission.
Please submit by January 31, 2016 through this link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=psf2016
All candidates will be notified by the end of April 2016.
