As many of you may know, our little collective of curators has been blessed to have many of our members called up into positions in galleries and museums well beyond our humble beginnings in Fullerton, California. Through these national and international connections we now invite you to participate in two current projects that span the globe: 1) an online project connected to current exhibitions in Syracuse, NY; and 2) an open call to sculpture artists for a juried exhibition in Florence, Italy!
First up: THE TO GO BOX
The To Go Box is an interactive and collaborative website running in conjunction with Light Work’s exhibition of Jackie Nickerson’s Terrain and 601 Tully’s group exhibition Nourish: An Exploration of Consumption. Both exhibitions are currently on view in Syracuse, New York (and Nourish… was curated by Sixpack’s Jillian Nakornthap), but The To Go Box offers weekly art assignments, discussions, and interviews that allow you to participate in the discussion from wherever you are! This week’s assignment comes from artist Tattfoo Tan, who invites you to “create your own modern day still life by using weekly supermarket advertisements found in your local circulars, mail or newspaper” (more info here)… and be sure to check in every week from now through December 8th for new projects and other ways to participate!
The Borghese Palace Art Hotel in Florence, Italy, invites sculpture artists from around the world to submit works for consideration in the first edition of the Firenze Futur’Arte Prize. This year’s theme is You-I-We. Selected works will be exhibited in the galleries at The Borghese Palace Art Hotel in 2014 and included in a catalog of the exhibition. A cash prize will also be awarded for first prize as selected by the jury (Sixpack’s Lilia Lamas is among the jurors). Submissions are being accepted through December 20th, 2013 – click here for more information (…or here if you want to practice your Italian).
