Documents, Processes and Artworks 2010-11:
Call for artist practitioners to exhibit, stage, or test out, work in MMU Cheshire’s Department of Contemporary Arts project space (OPEN SPACE), as part of the new season of Axis Art Centre activity.
The Department supports mixed and interdisciplinary arts practices (dance, theatre, music, visual/screen practice, live art, creative writing) at undergraduate and postgraduate level*, with a particular inflection towards research led practice, and is host to the ‘Curating Knowledge’ Project. We welcome initial proposals from contemporary practitioners who would appreciate the opportunity to show work in an open venue and/or to put work forward for discussion and feedback. Previous showings of work have included screen practice, installation, performance interventions, ‘relational’ practices and general multi-mode practices – as artworks and/or documents of ongoing process. Professional practitioners and PaR PhD students are equally welcome to apply.
The space is available for each project over a two to four week period and can involve your presence as artist in residence if desired. Initial inquiries (with outline of practice) will be followed up with more detailed information of venue and context. This is an ongoing invitation but we are looking to begin this particular programme of work in January 2011. For inclusion in the next showing schedule please make contact by August 15th.
Please express your interest to: Jane Linden (Curator - Open Space) email@example.com
