InLight Richmond 2017 Call for Proposals

Richmond's Arts & Culture District

Richmond VA United States

July 31   -   $30.00 Application Fee

1708 Gallery invites national and international artists working in all media and disciplines, including performance, to submit proposals for our 10th annual InLight Richmond.

InLight 2017 will take place on Friday, November 3, 2017, from 7pm to midnight, in Richmond’s Arts and Culture District. InLight is a public exhibition of light-based artworksâ€"videos and projections, multi-media and interactive projects, sculptures, installations, performances and a Community Lantern Parade.

InLight 2017 will take as its inspiration the Electric Carnival, a street festival that enlivened Broad Street in 1901. The Electrical Carnival featured a replica of the Eiffel Tower that was illuminated remotely by President Roosevelt via a telegraph key from the White House.

Proposals for InLight 2017 should involve, be inspired by, investigate, or interpret themes of light, from light as medium to light as concept. While existing work will be considered, 1708 Gallery encourages artists to propose projects that consider themes central to the Electric Carnivalâ€" technology, globalism, carnivals.

DEADLINE TO APPLY: Midnight (EST), Monday, July 31, 2017

Potential sites for installations and performances include pathways, façades and other walls, sidewalks, green spaces, trees, and more. In addition, a limited number of interior sites may be available. Artists may propose a specific site for both pre-existing and site-responsive works. Please indicate if your work is site-specific on your entry form. 1708 Gallery reserves the right to make final assignments.

The juror for 2017 is Nat Trotman, Curator of Performance and Media at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
