Call for Video Art: Visions for a New Normal

Call for Video Art: Visions for a New Normal

deadline: Sunday, August 1, 2021

Wavelength seeks video art for #pandemicprojections – Visions for a New Normal – a one night drive-in video event at Gardenship, an artist-run collider space on the site of a former shipyard in Kearny, NJ.

The screening takes place on the evening of Saturday, August 28th 2021.
THEME: Visions for a New Normal follows the first edition of #pandemicprojections, which took place over the course of 10 evenings at the height of the pandemic in spring/summer 2020. The events focused on themes of Nature/Spring/Rebirth.

One year later, Wavelength is once again inviting artists to consider the future. What do you hope for? What do you envision? What has been lost? What would you like to regain? What does the future hold? Artists are asked to submit work in response to these prompts. Wavelength is particularly interested in images that will read well outdoors on a large projection screen approximately 70 feet wide (i.e. – saturated colors, large shapes, bold imagery), and in experimental video and sound. The event will be a drive-in format with sound transmitted over FM radio as well as a speaker system.

SUBMIT: Share your file(s) with wavelengthart@gmail.com via Google Drive only in a folder labeled “Lastname_Wavelength.”

Videos should be no less than one minute, nor longer than 10 minutes in length, formatted as an .mp4 not to exceed 200 MB in size, formatted at 16:9 preferably. No more than 3 submissions per artist, please. Wavelength takes no responsibility for any credit omissions. It is the artists’ responsibility to insert their name, title of work, and any credit lines immediately preceding the video. When submitting to Google Drive please include in the message:
1. Name(s) of artist(s)
2. Contact email
3. Title of piece which should match the title of your video in Google drive
4. If applicable, your Facebook name and Instagram handle, and website URL.

Deadline for Submissions – Sunday, August 1st
Notifications – Tuesday, August 10th via email
Screening Date – Saturday, August 28, 2021. Doors open at 7:30pm, screening begin at 8:30pm
