Clothesline Exhibition

August 4, 2007

The Clothesline show is an uncurated nonexclusive event designed to foster a community of artists outside the traditional structure of our exhibitions program. It is a one night event, where all submissions are accepted with the exception of works that could be dangerous or damaging to the safety of patrons and their belongings. Because the Clothesline event is outside the structure of our exhibitions department, the following restrictions apply:
The Clothesline event scheduled for August 4th, 2007 is an outside sculpture garden. Artworks submitted must be weather-proof, or otherwise able to sustain any weather related damage that may happen on said date. The event will be postponed due to rain or other hazards, in which case upon request artworks could be kept until a later scheduled Clothesline event.
While all submissions are accepted, the art center can not guarantee the time commitment for installation of difficult or time-consuming works. Any artist with ambitious installation needs is encouraged to install the work themselves or arrange special attention with the show organizer. The Hyde Park Art Center is not responsible for damage to insufficiently wrapped works, and will only return all works to their original wrapping. All artists are responsible for picking up artwork within a period of one week from the date of the exhibition. Any artwork left behind after one week from closing of show will become unrestricted property of the Hyde Park Art Center unless arrangements have been made. We do not have the storage space to keep any art. For this show, all artists must sign a damage waiver and loan form. For this show artists are encouraged to make work that deals with climate, interacts with the environment, or is weather-proof enough to sustain damage due to direct sunlight, wind, possible rain and pedestrian traffic. Although sculpture is encouraged, 2 dimensional work is welcome, keeping in mind that there are no walls to hang from and each artist is responsible for their own hanging hardware (no drilling into brick or steel).
