INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR ARTIST PROPOSALS - December 15, 2008
Artists and groups of all cultural fields are invited to submit proposals for works/actions for Factory, an international exhibition taking place in two venues from May 2009. Factory exhibition focuses on production processes and their outcome in the framework of the art field, as well as on the social-economic structures that govern the contemporary world. The exhibition's theme is inspired by Andy Warhol's famous studio, which carried diverse functions during the 60s – a gathering place for the New York bohemia, a site in which both superstars and marginal characters dwelled, a place that shaped the public and artistic persona of Warhol and his companions while functioning as an artist's studio in the full sense of the word, stimulating artistic production in various media. Factory exhibition foregrounds the critical tension that resides in production processes of different art practices (video, sound, installation, performance, painting, photography etc.), between the live event, concrete artifacts and their display and consumption. We seek to induce the same tension in the friction and echoing formed between the exhibition's two venues, as the artistic activity in each of the sites will be shaped according to the unique characteristics of each space.
