Open Call: Sound Installation for Spring 2011

nbAUDIO 2011

An Open Call for Sound Artist in North Brooklyn

Deadline: Monday, August 30, 2010

The North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition (NbPac) is pleased to announce an open call for Brooklyn–based artists to propose projects for an upcoming sound installation.

Artists are invited to submit proposals through August 30, 2010.  The selected artist will be notified on September 15, 2010.

Project Description & Guidelines

NbPac invites Brooklyn-based artists to propose projects for a sound installation to be displayed for the greater North Brooklyn community (Bushwick, Greenpoint, Williamsburg) in Spring 2011.  Artists are asked to consider the historical, social, and political atmosphere of North Brooklyn’s community in their proposals for sound art.  A critical element of the project requires artists to select a site and describe how the public will be engaged in that space and with the artwork itself.  Artists are encouraged to create a new work or expand upon former projects that act in response to / in conversation with / or as a commentary on North Brooklyn.  Collaborative group projects are welcome!

Artists interested in being considered for nbAUDIO 2011 should submit a completed Proposal Cover Page (attached), as well as the required attachments by Monday, August 30, 2010.  Proposals received or postmarked after the due date will not be taken into consideration.
