Call for Artists: Peep Show

Call for Artists - Bring to Light (October 1, 2011) 

Ugly Art Room Presents: Peep Show

Deadline: August 19, 2011 

The roving curatorial project Ugly Art Room is looking for seven artists to contribute to Peepshow, our entry into Greenpoint’s Bring to Light festival 2011.

Peepshow is a small housing where viewers will be able to look through seven rotating disc Viewmasters™ fixed to a wall. Each Viewmaster™ holds seven images contributed from each artist; one Viewmaster™ per artist.
Among the sea of glaring lights the festival will display, Peepshow will offer more intimate spectacles with it’s enclosed light. Inner and otherworldly realities will be offered as a private and singular alternative to the cacophony behind the viewer’s back. The series of seven stereoscopic images calls for a wide variety of artistic practice. Multiple images allow for a range of concept – from photography, to interiors, narrative, to abstract study - while the 3-d aspect exploits the intimate one-looker-at-a-time diorama. Artists considered will take full advantage of these elements.

Exhibition: October 2, 2011, Dusk
Location: West St & Noble, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (subject to change)
Deadline for submission: Friday, August 19, 2011
