Staten Island Arts is now accepting submissions of single-channel, non-narrative videos from individual artists, groups or organizations working in experimental video interested in participating in LUMEN8, an exhibition celebrating the past seven years of Staten Island Arts’s LUMEN Festival.
This exhibit will run from June 15 to September 10, 2017 at ArtSpace @ Staten Island Arts. Co-curated by Monica Valenzuela and Raul Barquet, this exhibit will feature video, sound art, performance art, and ephemera from past festival participants and honor the artistic genres that the festival highlights. LUMEN8 pays homage to this annual festival, pulling select work from the past seven years that we’ve loved alongside a loop of single-channel video works submitted to Staten Island Arts through this open call.
DEADLINE: The deadline to apply is midnight (EST) Friday, May 26, 2017.
Applicants are required to submit completed single-channel video files by May 26, 2017.
Applicants are not required to be from Staten Island, though Staten Island artists are strongly encouraged to apply. There is no entry fee to apply. All applications are accepted via email only. Do not submit hard-copy materials. They will be disqualified and not be reviewed.
Applications are reviewed by a curatorial team and notifications will go out via email by Wednesday, May 31, 2017.
