The Indianapolis Airport Authority (IAA), in consultation with the Arts Council of Indianapolis, invites artists working in film and/or video to submit proposals for temporary (6 months) screening on the big screen above the main escalator/stair between the Ticket Hall and Baggage Claim at Indianapolis International Airport, the IAA’s flagship site. This solicitation is for screenings to occur during 2019 and 2020. All work screened must be suitable in form, material and content for a mixed-ages audience that will include young children. Preference will be given to Indiana artists* and to displays that engage and/or reflect the diverse culture and environment of Central Indiana. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. The deadline for 2019-2020 screenings is September 1, 2019.
*For the purposes of this process, an Indiana artist is one who was either born or raised in Indiana, pursued higher education in Indiana, or lived in Indiana as an adult for a significant period of time. The IAA is particularly interested in working with artists who have a strong connection to Central Indiana (defined as Indianapolis/Marion County and the following adjacent counties: Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Madison, Morgan, Shelby).
Video works are screened for a period of six months, either January 1 – June 30 or July 1 – December 31. It is possible to break a six-month period into two three-month screenings for similar or coordinating works by one artist. The IAA provides a presentation fee of $1500 for existing video works (or for existing still works adapted to the big screen format) or $2500 for new video created for the airport site. The artist is responsible for all costs and expenses necessary to create new work.
The final video length must be exactly 60 seconds (including artist and production credits), which is the time it takes for a visitor to experience the screen when descending on the escalator. Sound is not supported by the existing presentation technology.
Proposals must include the following, on a single CD or other portable media, or via WeTransfer.com or Dropbox (to firstname.lastname@example.org):
