Call for Proposals
VISUALEYEZ Canada’s Annual Performance Art Festival
The twelfth annual Visualeyez festival of performance art is happens from 13–18 September 2011 in the downtown core of Edmonton, Alberta, exploring on the curatorial theme of worship.
Visualeyez takes place over a period of six days and it is required that all invited artists are able to attend for the entire length of the festival. Artists experience the work of other artists; engage in discussion groups, meals and other activities that enhance the work of individual artists and the performance art community within Canada and beyond. Please visit visualeyez.org for the past festival.
Curator and Founder of Visualeyez, Todd Janes states, “Visualeyez 2011 takes a rather different focus, and I am curious how artists are engaging in discourses surrounding worshipping; or executing issues of devotion, contemplation and adoration as a key element in their practices and performances. I am not just curious about spiritual but also commoditization and extremes like obsessions”.
Proposals should include: a CV; artist statement; a detailed description of the work you wish to present, or explore; and support material that can include slides, video, print or digital documentation of your work, catalogues, and press.
The deadline for submission is Friday, 20 May 2011.
If you would like your materials returned to you, please also include sufficient postage or courier materials. Artists shall be contacted by mid-June 2011 regarding the status of their proposals.
