Gallery 924 at the Arts Council of Indianapolis

Gallery 924 is seeking screen-based and new media artwork from central Indiana artists for a Contemporary Video Show. We are looking to explore the various ways artists are employing film, video, and digital technologies to create art.

This group exhibition will be chosen by an internal selection committee and curated and installed by the Gallery 924 staff. The show will open with a public reception on Thursday, January 31st as well as First Friday, February 1, 2019. The exhibition will close on Friday, March 22, 2019.

Work will be selected based on its quality and the relevance to the theme of the show: contemporary video and new media. Artists working in all styles are encouraged to submit, but work must be original.  Submissions may include but are not limited to: animation, digital technologies, data-driven and generative imaging, custom software, artwork utilizing gaming platforms and technology, animated GIFs, as well as conventional film and digital video editing. Preference will be given to work that was completed within the last three years. Submissions under 5 minutes will be given priority, but works of any length will be considered.

Eligibility

All central Indiana artists over the age of 18 are welcome to submit. For these purposes, central Indiana is considered Marion and the seven surrounding counties.

Requirements

Wall-based artwork/equipment must be ready to hang. If you do not have the necessary equipment for display, the gallery staff may be able work with you to find a display solution for the duration of the exhibition.

As installation of selected artworks may require the artist’s technical expertise, selected artists may be asked to schedule an installation appointment between January 21 and January 30, 2019.  Artists are encouraged to attend the opening, but not required to do so.
