AC Institute: Narrative | Identity [us NYC]

Narrative | Identity — curated by Nicole Bebout and Sonja Hofstetter :: February 3 – March 12, 2011 :: AC Institute, 547 West 27th Street, New York :: Open Call for Group Exhibition — Deadline: September 12, 2010.

“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.” Oscar Wilde

As a means of grappling with the flux of identity, narratives are a necessary part of individual and social constructs. Whether internal or external, narratives define how we see ourselves and others.

  • Which facts construct our identities?
  • Do we have a variety of identities and what makes us change them?
  • Is the identity we display in public different than our private one?
  • What happens if we take an identity of another person?
  • Does an ID or passport tell the most important things about us? If you don’t have one does it mean you are invisible?
  • Does education and knowledge about society and politics change our identity?

Narrative | Identity seeks to investigate the ways in which narrative is used by contemporary artists to construct or demolish our ideas of self and other. Whether through guerrilla-like disruption, ambiguity or fantasy inspired story-telling, we are seeking artists who see narrative as essential to their artistic identity.

Focusing on experimental, installation, and new media work, AC seeks submissions from contemporary artists, and others, working in any medium. Artists are encouraged to submit work either already existing or as-yet unrealized that addresses the interlocking questions of narrative and identity; either at the level of social practice, contemporary representation, or both.

Email submissions should be sent to submissions [at] artcurrents.org by September 15, 2010. Please include the following in the body of your message (not as attachments):

– A short description and/or images of the work you are proposing for our spaces
– Your standard CV and contact information
– Links to your website or other sites where materials could be viewed, if possible

NO ATTACHMENTS PLEASE

About AC Institute: The AC Institute exists to advance art through investigation, research and practice. It is a lab for experimentation and a forum for critical discussion. Emphasizing emerging, international, and under-represented artists, the Institute develops projects across disciplines, exhibiting work deploying a variety of strategies for critical, experiential, and performative interventions in the field of contemporary art. In addition to publishing critical writing that pushes conventional expectations of meaning and objectivity, the AC Institute realizes off-site projects taking place at the edge of the art marketplace. Committed to an integrated vision of creative practice, Art Currents creates autonomous spaces to pursue experimental work. The AC institute is non-profit 501(c)3 under the Direction of Holly Crawford.

Since moving to Chelsea in September of 2008, AC has mounted numerous exhibitions and performances, participated in the 2009 Armory show with Critical Conversations in a Limo; collaborated with over 50 artists; and worked with various cultural organizations including Rhizome and Harvestworks to pursue its mission. We provide space, programming support, and certain A/V equipment. Please see our website for more information: www.artcurrents.org.
