Deadline Extended! Please submit entries by: November 7, 2017
The Remixing Media, ©ritiquing ©ulture FIG is currently accepting submissions from artists for the first ever UO ©ritical A®t Show, which is an event that brings together student and community artists. The event is organized and curated by a group of 20 first-year students in a FIG (freshman interest group), the FIG Assistant, Madeleine Jones, and their instructor Andre´ Sirois (DJ food stamp). This call for submissions is open to everybody!
The work submitted, or proposed, must meet two basic criteria:
The work must sample, borrow, appropriate, remix other media
- 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.
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.
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.
