Call For Digital Art: Storefront Media Gallery

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, September 26, 2018

4Culture is seeking electronic artworks for the Storefront Media Gallery. Up to twelve artists will be selected to present from one (1) to three (3) artwork(s) based on completed or proposed media work, for a period of up to one year. Media artists working in all genres are encouraged to apply. Due to the transitory nature of the audience, works up to 5 minutes are desired. Additionally, because of the urban setting and sounds of the street, artworks should not be highly dependent upon sound.

The Storefront Media Gallery is comprised of four screens (each 1920 x 1080), located in 4Culture’s storefront windows, facing Prefontaine Place South. Two directional speakers are mounted on the exterior of the building, broadcasting sound to passers-by. Artists may present the same work on all four screens or have different visuals on each screen (with one audio file).

Selected artists will work with the program manager to adapt selected work for optimal presentation. The Storefront Media Gallery utilizes software with a timeline interface, which is distributed through a network to the display monitors and speakers. Artworks by numerous artists will be scheduled to play on the timeline, which will loop during presentation hours. The entire program usually lasts about one hour.

Selected artists will also work with the program manager to create promotional materials including a press release, and materials for 4Culture’s social media and/or website. Each selected artist will receive a $500 honorarium to help defray related expenses. The artists’ name(s) and artwork title(s) will be posted on the monitors before the artists’ work(s) play. The artists retain all rights of the works submitted.
