(Excerpt from '10.-22.-38 Astoria #2 call for entries' posted on FICTILIS. Found on http://www.fictilis.com/calls/10-22-38-astoria-2)
FICTILIS’s mission is to create and share work that is aesthetically, conceptually, socially, and technologically engaging.
This October-November, FICTILIS will present the second installment of 10.-22.-38 Astoria, our gallery-wide installation/exhibition celebrating the art of xerography (photocopying). The Lab in San Francisco will transform into a pop-up copy shop that is pre-stocked with a wide selection of ready-to-copy artworks, by artists from the Bay Area and beyond. Visitors can use on-site copy machines to interact with the collection in several ways and contribute to its evolution over the course of the exhibition.
FICTILIS seeks submissions of black and white xerographic work of all types and styles. ("Xerography" is a fancy word for photocopying. "10.-22.-38 Astoria" was the first text/image ever produced using this technology*.) Submissions must be black and white on 8-1/2" x 11" ( US letter size) text weight paper. There is no submission fee and no limit on the number of submissions (though each submission should be unique).
Exhibition dates: October 25th-November 17th 2012; at The Lab, 2948 16th Street, San Francisco (hours TBA)
Deadline for submissions: October 15th
