Call for Open Crit
Next Program Date: December 15, 2011
Facilitators: Natasha Egan and Dawoud Bey
Submissions Due by Monday, November 28, 2011
Calling all artists: Not sure what’s next for your artwork? Feeling bogged down in your practice and not sure of its effectiveness or what to do next? For artists looking to take that next big step in their work and career, this is an opportunity to discuss current works in progress with some of Chicago’s most notable curators, critics, dealers and artists.
The Open Crit program asks what is the critical discourse surrounding your work, and how does your work relate to that discourse? Designed to be useful for artists who really want to progress to the next level in their career, each artist will have up to 40 minutes of dedicated discussion with our co-facilitators and the audience. The session will provide critical response to actual works brought in for the evening. This is an opportunity to get real honest feedback, a chance to become part of the critical artistic discourse, and is definitely not for the squeamish!
Artists will be chosen based on applications to the program series. Submit a CV, artist statement, 10 images for consideration, an image list (including size of work and media), and a brief statement answering the question, “Why do you want to be a part of Open Crit?” to Ray Yang, 4833 Program Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
