ASPECT Open Call Performance

ASPECT is currently welcoming submissions for our ninth volume, Performance. This issue will focus on the broad spectrum of performance art-from the most traditional interpretations to those integrating advanced technologies, inanimate objects, passersby, sites, and beyond.

All submissions must include the following, and must be postmarked by September 30, 2006.

  • Video in DVD, VHS or miniDV format.
  • Artist’s name and resume
  • Artist and Commentator contact information (phone, mailing address, and e-mail)
  • Commentator’s name and resume
  • Brief notes outlining the contents of the proposed commentary
  • A self-addressed stamped envelope if materials need to be returned

Commentators can be curators, critics, theorists, educators, or other individuals with a broad understanding of the artist’s work and the greater art historical context. An artist cannot supply his or her own commentary. The video should be between 5-12 minutes in length.

You will be contacted by November 1 if your piece is selected. At that point, the following additional information will be needed:

  • Your video on miniDV tape or as uncompressed Quicktime data file on dvd
  • A short (approx. 100 words) biography of the artist
  • A short (approx. 100 words) statement about the work
  • A photograph of the artist
  • A short (approx. 100 words) commentator’s biography
  • A photograph of the commentator
