CALL FOR VIDEO ART

Wavelength seeks video art for #pandemicprojections – Visions for a New Normal –  a one night drive-in video event at Gardenship, an artist-run collider space on the site of a former shipyard in Kearny NJ. 

The screening takes place on the evening of Saturday, August 28th 2021.   

Alessandro Brighetti – Smokeocene

THEME: Visions for a New Normal follows the first edition of #pandemicprojections which took place over the course of 10 evenings at the height of the pandemic in spring/summer 2020. The events  focused on themes of Nature/Spring/Rebirth. One year later we again invite artists to consider the future. What do you hope for? What do you envision?  What has been lost? What would you like to regain? What does the future hold? Artists are asked to submit work in response to these prompts. We are particularly interested in images that will read well outdoors on a large projection screen approximately 70 feet wide (i.e. – saturated colors, large shapes, bold imagery). We are particularly interested in experimental video and sound.  The event will be a drive-in format with sound transmitted over FM radio as well as a speaker system.

ABOUT WAVELENGTH: Wavelength is a curatorial collaborative founded in 2015 by Gianluca Bianchino, an artist/curator, and Jeanne Brasile, a curator/artist. Their projects explore the relationship between art and science via immersive exhibitions, interviews with artists/scientists/curators, artists talks, critical writing and symposia. Wavelength’s curatorial practice considers phenomenological art informed by scientific principles.
