Open Call: Interstice Exhibition

The Residency Project

Los Angeles, CA

The Residency Project is accepting immediate submissions of time-based work (ie. video, sound, live in-person performance, live digital performance), net art, social practice works, and other non-object based works for our current curatorial project, Interstice.

About the Exhibition:
Interstice is an alternative, itinerant, and evolving exhibition that will be on view July 1–August 31 in Los Angeles, where it will rove from site to site; activating in-between spaces and filling cracks in the construct.

Interstice began as a short-run exhibition featuring artist books, small sculptures, and sensorial installations that touch upon the theme of interstices*—interstitial spaces, moments, identities, philosophies, and states of being or perceiving. The exhibition made its debut in Minnesota, popping up at Focus Arts in Minneapolis and Franconia Sculpture Park in Shafer from May 15–31, 2021. The scope of Interstice has since expanded to include many more artists, presenting work in other media including but not limited to video, sound, performance, web-work, and social practice.

Submission & Exhibition Guidelines

• Artists may submit up to 3 artworks for consideration.

• At this time, we are considering video, sound, live performance, digital performance, net art/web-based work, and other non-object based works that pertain to the theme of the exhibition.

• Artists submitting in-person work (ie. live performance, socially-engaged projects) must be currently located in Los Angeles or the surrounding region.

• Artists submitting anything besides live/in-person works can be based anywhere; however, your artwork must be accessible to the curator through digital means (ie. a GIF, a URL to a web-based work, links to video/sound works on YouTube, Vimeo, SoundCloud). Physical materials (media players, thumb drives, discs, and other tangibles) will not be accepted for this iteration of the exhibition.

• Completed works only! In-progress projects will not be considered due to the tight timeframe of the exhibition. Please submit full works only; DO NOT submit samples of digital time-based work.

• Travel is not provided for participating artists. For non-local artists who opt to travel to Los Angeles, accommodations are not guaranteed but we may be able to set you up with an urban campsite at The Residency Project depending on availability!

• As an extension of the exhibition, all selected artworks will be included in a print and online catalogue to be published in Fall 2021.
