CALLS FOR SUBMISSIONS
For and About: Art and Reactions to Superstorm Sandy
Curated by Radar Curatorial
Deadline to Apply: June 5, 2013
Exhibition Dates: September 27, 2013 – February 14, 2014
BAC Gallery seeks work that extends beyond documentation for For and About: Art and Reactions to Superstorm Sandy, a curatorial project focused on how artists experience and interpret natural disasters. The show is open to visual and literary artists based in Brooklyn, who wish to present work dedicated to people affected by Hurricane Sandy, and/or about the storm’s impact on Brooklyn. For and About is an opportunity to focus on the communities hit hardest by the storm, creating a space to reflect on the collective and individual experiences at the one-year anniversary of the storm.
The project will include a group exhibition of visual artworks on display in BAC Gallery as well as a site-specific installation integrated into the Dumbo community during the Dumbo Arts Festival. For this multi-faceted curatorial project, Radar Curatorial will also gather written work along the same theme to present in a limited-edition printed zine and to publish online at brooklynartscouncil.org.
