Call for Proposals: Into the Wilderness: The Journey Within – Due 3/1/12

The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.
– John Muir

Angels Gate Cultural Center (AGCC) is calling for proposals from artists, performers and curators, for exhibitions that engage the term of wildness or wilderness from multiple perspectives ranging from ecological to introspective. The exhibition year is entitled Into the Wilderness: The Journey Within.

During the latter part of the 19th century many people championed the notion that everybody, rich or poor, should have access to the wilderness as a means to restore themselves, both spiritually and physically. As we continue to define our relationship to the environment in proprietary terms, our relationships with the environment can still elicit wonder and provoke transcendent experience as experienced and described by naturalists such as John Muir.

This call for work seeks proposals that consider how the term wilderness continues to define our contemporary life and contemplate how people can find new opportunities that will re/define the transition between physical and imaginary geographies. How do we see digital spaces in relationship to the wildernesses?

Angels Gate Cultural Center, located within Los Angeles County, seeks proposals from local, regional and national artistic communities. Work by curators, media artists, performance artists, collectives, musicians, theater groups, dancers, and visual artists of all types are encouraged to apply. Proposals will be selected based on artistic merit and strength of proposal. Proposals that take into account the location of Angels Gate Cultural Center are strongly encouraged. We seek work that is thoughtful and thought provoking.

PROPOSAL REQUIREMENTS:

  1. Title and Project Description
  2. Contact info for Curator and/or Artist(s) (Email, phone, address)
  3. Statement and Bio for Curator and/or Artist(s)
  4. CD of images of featured artwork and artwork list (For digital proposals, please link to online example). Minimum number of images is 15.
  5. 5. Proposed exhibition layout. Specs on space can be emailed.

Deadline for the proposals is March 1, 2012. Proposals will be selected for the entire 2012/2013-exhibition year with the first installation commencing in early May 2012.

Proposals can be emailed or mailed.

Email the proposal as a single PDF to submit(at)angelsgateart.org using the subject line WILDERNESS.
