NY Adventure Club’s 3rd Annual UrbExpo: “Beyond a City’s Limits” (New York, NY)

NY Adventure Club’s 3rd Annual UrbExpo: “Beyond a City’s Limits” (New York, NY)

This Deadline Expired: Friday, March 16, 2018

The New York Adventure Club’s 3rd annual UrbExpo is a pop-up art exhibit documenting urban exploration subcultures. In the past, the focus of this event has been on New York City. This year’s showcase expands. We’ll be celebrating beautiful remnants of our ever-changing urban environments, highlighting the broken and abandoned, and unearthing the forbidden. And we’ll be doing this, again, within the old gothic walls of the infamous Jefferson Market Library. Greenwich Village itself offers a perfect setting for our photos, videos, installations and music. Once an uptown hotbed for NYC outcasts, this thriving market-turned-courthouse-turned library is now a centerpiece of downtown creative culture and an embodiment of UrbExpo’s explorative spirit.

The Library will be divided into sections with individually curated themes. This call is specifically for “Beyond A City’s Limits”, and will be located in the library’s incredible basement. The space is gorgeous, with exposed bricks and big steel beams! I am seeking artwork that showcases cities around the world. Imagery of subway tunnels (MTA tunnels in NYC?), abandoned buildings (abandoned Philadelphia schools?), entire communities evaporated (swaths of Rustbelt cities like Detroit). Any city will do, but I’m looking specifically for on-topic art that crosses a line. Please note, abstracted pieces inspired by global urbex will not be selected. I’m looking for visible representation of the direct theme here.

Here is a link to the call page: https://about.nyadventureclub.com/urbexpo2018/. Please email submissions by March 16th to qori@mswrittenart.com
