Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art

Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art announces an open call to video artists seeking to exhibit work in a new emerging artists exhibition. Artists producing museum quality work are encouraged to submit samples in DVD format. Shorter videos (less than 20 minutes) work best in these spaces, but, if viewers can walk in and see the video at any point and it can still be understood, longer running times are acceptable. The exhibition will feature six works to be screened in our Installation galleries. Each space is 9×10 feet and is large enough to house a single-channel projected video or up to three channels on monitors. Please mail submissions to Adam McCoy, Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art, 1200 Forrest Park Dr., Nashville, TN 37205. Include a CV, artist statement, and self-addressed stamped envelope if you would like your work returned. The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2007. Notification letters will go out in August, and the exhibition will run from October 6, 2007 through April 6, 2008.

The museum has exhibited video works from across the world since the galleries were established in 1998. Supported by a grant from the Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, this program is one of the first and most prominent video exhibition programs in the southeastern United States. Past shows have included such established video artists as Gary Hill, Yoko Ono, Gary Simmons, Bill Viola, William Kentridge, Pipilotti Rist, and Zhang Huan. In addition, emerging artists such as Kristin Lucas, John Pilson, Jefferson Pinder, and Harell Fletcher have also exhibited at Cheekwood.
