Bicycle Utopia, a transmedia project dedicated to the culture of urban cycling, launched an open call for photography and “photography-based art” on the theme of “complete streets and bike safety.” We have no idea what “complete streets” means so interpret freely…but the bike part seems relatively clear.
The show, titled “Am I Invisible? A Portrait of New York City Bicyclists” will celebrate the diversity and unique style of the city’s two-wheeled riders, while “subtly” advocating for safe streets. So consider including helmets.
The deadline to submit is 2/28 and a portion of the submission fee (a wee bit steep at $30) will be donated to Recycle-A-Bicycle, which we presume does just that, by helping youths and such.
The five best images will be awarded a $200 gift certificate to redeem in participating bike shops and the final exhibition will be held on in April at the Old Stone House and Washington Park in South Brooklyn.
There have been some changes to the open call I sent out last week. For one the location of the show has changed and will be held at The Yard (33 Nassau Ave). It’s an amazing space to hang art. The deadline for submissions has also been extended to September 2nd, 2013.
Please consider submitting your work and please share this with artists living and/or working in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It’s going to be a great show!
Opening Reception: Friday, September 13, 2013, 6pm-9pm
Exhibition: 9/13/13 – 10/04/13
There is never a better time than now, but the moving target of “in the moment” is ever elusive. We are often told to “let go of the past” and “stop worrying about the future.” At the same time we are told that “patience is a virtue “and that we must wait for the “right time.” Continue reading →
Opening: Friday September 13, 2013, 7-9pm
Exhibition: 9/13/13 – 9/30/13
There is never a better time than now, but the moving target of “in the moment” is ever elusive. We are often told to “let go of the past” and “stop worrying about the future.” At the same time we are told that patience is a virtue and that we must wait for the “right time.”
But what about now? What is now? Right here. Right now.
Now is a time and place. We are all inspired by our time – the year 2013 – and our space, which is Greenpoint, Brooklyn, USA, the planet. This will be the loose connecting theme among the artwork chosen. Special considerations will be given to works that consider time and place.
All mediums accepted.
The show titled “NOW” will present the contemporary artwork of artists living or working in Greenpoint – work that has been created specifically for this show or within the last 6 mo, as well as work created on site during the opening reception on 9/13/13. Progressions of pieces: studies along with completed work will be accepted. Unfinished works will also be accepted. Artwork will be created on site during the opening.
The show will serve as a “snapshot” of the contemporary art community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn during the year of 2013.
