Call for Entries!

Hey People! I know I've done a great job of leaving everyone out of the loop on what I've been up to lately. To make a long story short, I moved from Columbia to Kansas City and am now working for the Charlotte Street Foundation, an arts organization that has tons of exhibitions, awards grants to artists and is an all-around, bang-up place to work!

Anyway, we've just put out a call for entries for an upcoming show called PAGES, curated by the beyond talented Amy Kligman, which will explore book arts, zines, magazines and a slew of other interesting things. Take a look at the description below, and please think about submitting. Exciting, right!?

To find out more about Charlotte Street Foundation and the Urban Culture Project, check out the website.

Urban Culture Project and independant curator Amy Kligman are soliciting work for an upcoming exhibition. This show will include book related work, ranging widely in format and purpose. The hope is to present to the community the book as an opportunity — the book as entry point to one's own art practice, as catalyst to new and evolved work, and as an unpredictable format that can be taken far beyond the bound signatures with which we are most familiar.

We will look specifically for work that exemplifies the following categories:
1. Books inspiring new media projects (projection, film, digital)
2. Wall pieces that are inspired by the book format or convey the impress of "pages"
3. Sketchbooks, Process Books
4. Artist Books (small-run, limited edition or original books only, not mass produced).
5. Books demonstrating the Zine or Magazine format
6. Altered books and/or books as sculptural object
7. Work demonstrating collaboration between artists and writers, poets, journalists, academics

DEADLINE: August 15, 2010

Exhibition Dates: November 19th, 2010 to early January 2011
Exhibition Location: Paragraph Gallery, an Urban Culture Project Space

Submission Checklist:
-low res (72 dpi) jpeg format of either work you wish to submit, or images related to a proposed project piece to be created for the show, OR link to website where images of work are available
-written description of the work. Include conceptual description, title dimensions, media and date.
-A one-page, abbreviated CV
-Description of all display needs associated with work. Please let us know ahead of time if your work is "touchable" or not. Some book works are meant for browsing, some are not. Both are fine for the purpose of this show, but we want to know ahead of time to properly prepare.
-Please indicate if you are interested in participation if the show travels beyond its initial venue.

Send entries to: by AUGUST 15, 2010. Please enter "PAGES SUBMISSION" in the subject line.
