Live artists are invited to submit proposals for pop-up performances in Margate and Folkestone as part of Venice Agendas 2017: The Contract.
Responding to the theme of The Contract, proposed performances should consider the role of the contract in all of our lives, from end-user agreements, through the social contract with government(s), our working arrangements and agreements we make with our friends and families, formal (like work contracts or mortgages) or informal (in person, on the phone or through social media). As artists, what are the contracts we depend upon? What are our concerns around the formal agreements made between commissioners, presenting institutions and artists? Any ‘contract’ is a suitable subject for consideration.
Performances should be pop-up in nature, and not require bespoke materials or resources. Performances that encourage or require participation, establishing or exploring a ‘contract’ with the audience are particularly encouraged.
Fees: £500 plus up to £100 expenses
Deadline: 5pm on Friday 12th May
How: Email a single page proposal with links to online resources, such as artist website or Axisweb, Lux, LADA, or similar resource. Showreels available online are also acceptable, if private provide access details.
Notification: By email by 19th May
Saturday 17 June (Turner Contemporary, Margate)
