Call for Artists: While I'm Waiting

THINK MAKE TANK

San Francisco, CA

A THINK MAKE TANK EXHIBITION

DEADLINE: MARCH 15, 2019

OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS

THINK MAKE TANK has been under pressure of eviction for the last couple of months. We are excited to say that we have gained time…for now. As we wait, we are preparing a collaborative group exhibit with the theme WHILE I’M WAITING.

 

DESCRIPTION

People wait.

Some waiting is caused by borders that cannot be crossed.

Some wait to become mothers.

Some wait for their amazon boxes to arrive home.

Some wait for a sun patch to arrive at the right place in the room.

Time moves, keeps moving and we wait.

In that delay or pause some part of us is still.

How does waiting impact our psyche and our daily lives?

What do we wait for?

How do we experience waiting?

THINK MAKE TANK invites artists of all disciplines to submit proposals to convey the idea “WHILE I’M WAITING…” Proposals can take on various interpretations of the phrase that touch on the notions of time, emotions, perceptions, experiences, and actions.
