A Call to prepare you for The Call.
I thought I would talk a bit about the next exhibition opportunity for the Lafayette City Center Gallery to give all time to prepare for submissions. Earlier we talked about a word and image opportunity. The response was huge but I soon realized I can’t pull it off with the presentations we wanted to do. Instead, this is what I propose:
The idea of the exhibition will be that 2 people submit together as 1 submission. You may submit as 2 photographers, a photographer and a poet (or writer), 2 poets, a poet and a writer, 2 writers. Get what I’m saying? The unit of 2 submit as a pairing or 1 submission. And what is submitted (the pairing) is somehow connected. The connection could be that they are made or chosen because each responds to the other in some way. The topic could be the unifier. It is the collaborative dialogue I am looking for. Is your mother tongue the photograph or written word. You decide and find your collaborator and submit together.
We can’t find your counterpart for you, though. We will however assemble an exhibition from submissions that fit the space. I would say in early March I will be asking to receive the submissions. (Already did that) And by early April we will know which collaborators will be in the exhibit. And the exhibit will open after “Abstraction Attraction” closes in May. Does it all make sense? The work submitted must be created by those who submit together. Last opportunity to submit will be Tuesday 10 AM April 9th. I am now assembling the exhibit and as I get into it more it will be harder to add so try to submit earlier.
As usual the Griffin can not pay for your printing, framing nor shipping to and fro. No submission fee as usual for LCC shows.
Ask me questions if I have not been clear on the concept.
