Call for Entry for LPP’s next Online Exhibition
Call for Entry!
LPP is pleased to announce a call for entry for its next online exhibition-Inspiration Station
The exhibition will be presented online February 4-March 15, 2013, with a publication available March 11.
This is no regular call for entry-the exhibition will not include any artwork itself, but rather showcase its supporting elements-the artist’s workplace, materials and objects of inspiration, written descriptions, and will highlight the factors of time and chance into an exhibition’s selection process.
Artists, if you were asked to describe your work by only showing things that inspire you (such as objects, photographs, or books), in the place where you make the work, and describe the work verbally in a brief statement, could you? If you only had a few days to prepare for this, would you be ready? As artists, we hope that the art will speak for itself, but the supplements of an artists’ practice and the chance elements of timing and preparedness are just as much a part of the exhibition process. These supplements include a place to work, materials and objects of inspiration, and writing about the work. LPP’s mission includes the encouragement of dialogue and engagement of its community, we hope to foster and promote all elements of contemporary art. We want to read what you have to write, see the things that inspire you and the places where you make the work. Now is your chance to share this.
For the submission process, we ask that you pay attention to a few simple rules. To be considered for inclusion in the exhibit, you must follow these exactly. Please read them carefully.
