Deadline: May 30, 2009
SIGN invites proposals from visual and performing artists interested in the spectacle of daily urban life. In its 5th edition, AiOP takes place on 14th Street, NYC from October 1-26, 2009.
We encourage artists and performers to explore its length and diversity, tease out its history and intervene imaginatively to encourage visitors, workers and inhabitants to discover it anew. AiOP 2009 is inspired by the many meanings of SIGN: Direction. Ban. Authority. Solidarity. Advertisement. Ownership. Gesture. Enticement. Omen. Signature. Trace.
We are looking for work that is as much a sign of the times as a signpost to possibilities. Our interests include but are not limited to artist proposals for walks, tours and maps, (re)uses of public space, site-specific performance, social interventions, artists’ projects with community partnerships, innovative uses of new technology.
2009 guest curators: Erin Donnelly and Radhika Subramaniam.
AiOP Director: Ed Woodham.
