FADO Call for Emerging Artists Series 2014

FADO Call for Emerging Artist Series 2014!!!!
Deadline date: December 15, 2013

FADO Performance Art Centre: Emerging Artists Series 2014
11:45PM
Co-presented with Xpace Cultural Centre
Curated by Kate Barry

Durational performance is a mode of live art where the artist works directly with the medium of time. Over the course of hours, days or longer the performer and the audience can experience a physical, mental, spiritual and/or emotional transformation. Durational performance functions to bring the performer and the audience into the moment; time is made palpable and visceral. Artists like Tehching Hsieh, Alastair MacLennan, and most famously, Marina Abramovic, demonstrate how durational performance art can use mental and physical endurance to challenge the commoditization of art by offering an experience of art that is ephemeral by nature.

FADO is seeking proposals of durational performance works from emerging artists to be presented in our 2014 edition of the Emerging Artists Series, entitled 11:45PM. Performances should be a minimum of 6-hours and a maximum of 4-days. FADO and Xpace define emerging artists as those who are 2-3 years out of school, are at the beginning stages of their careers, and have not yet had the opportunity for a professional presentation of their work.

The deadline for submissions is December 15, 2013.

Submissions should include:
-CV
-artistic statement
-brief biographical information
-description of proposed work
-documentation of previous work (maximum of 10 images, and / or 2-3 short documentation videos to a maximum of 5 minutes)

Please note that this series seeks to highlight the work of Toronto and Canadian artists. This is NATIONAL call only. Please direct enquiries to [email protected]
