1708 Gallery's InLight Richmond Call for Proposals
Type: Exhibition Opportunities [View all]
Posted by: 1708 Gallery
Deadline: Mon, July 15th, 2019
1708 Gallery invites national and international artists working in all media and disciplines to submit entries for the 12th annual InLight Richmond. InLight is a public exhibition of contemporary light-based artworks— multimedia and interactive projects, video, projection, sculpture, installation, and performance.
InLight 2019 will take place at Chimborazo Park in the Church Hill neighborhood of Richmond. Artists are invited to propose projects that critically engage with the social and geographic history of this site. Two key moments in the park’s history include being the location of the largest Confederate military hospital during the Civil War and following Emancipation, hosting a Freedmen’s community for formerly enslaved African-Americans. 1708 seeks artists and projects that respond to, elaborate on, and propose new ways of understanding these complex histories.
DEADLINE TO APPLY: Midnight (EST), Monday, July 15, 2019
Potential sites for installations and performances include pathways, sidewalks, green spaces, trees, and more. There are no interior sites available. Artists may propose a specific site for both pre-existing and site-responsive works. Please indicate if your work is site-specific on your entry form. 1708 Gallery reserves the right to make final site assignments.
