3 Commissions @ $3,000

Turbulence.org and Pace Digital Gallery announce an Open Call for Networked Art to be commissioned for the exhibition “Turbulence.org@PaceDigitalGallery2.”

3 commissions @ $3,000 will be awarded. The deadline for proposals is November 1, 2010. The works will premier at Pace and on Turbulence in April 2011.

The curators are seeking works that address the notion of “Levels | Hierarchies,” as in chains of command, levels of play, stages of life, degrees of comfort… Pace Digital Gallery is, itself, distributed across three floors of a building; within a broad stairwell to be precise. Practitioners are required to address the theme according to both the physical space and the distributed space of the Internet, where the works will reside permanently.

Those of you who live in New York are encouraged to visit the gallery to see the space (gallery hours are Tues – Fri, 12 – 5pm). On view through October 22, “David Crawford: Retrospective.”

  1. In the subject header: “Turbulence Proposal-your name.”
