FOR ARTIST CRITICS
We are currently looking for a number of written pieces to contextualise a group show that Yann Novak, France Jobin and I are
curating at Oboro in Montréal in March 2012.
The exhibition is named "Sublimation" and is an immersive exhibition featuring audio-visual works from international artists, curated to define the concept of the "Sublime Environment": the saturation of both the sonic and visual landscape, represented by works of immersive sound and visual art.
The month-long exhibition features numerous interdisciplinary artists including AV works by: Clinker, Robert Crouch, Mem1, mimosa|moize, T UM', Sublamp.
The installed AV exhibition will be complimented by an extended evening of sublime, immersive sonic environments, and absorbing, contemplative sound sculpture in the form of an audio screening featuring artists: Celer, Heribert Friedl, Katherine Bennett, Robin Parmar, Scant Intone, Stéphane Claude, Tomas Phillips | Craig Hilton and Tom White; and on the opening night, live performances by: mimosa|moize and David Kristian.
If you are interested in writing a piece (of no more than 1200 words) to contextualise the exhibition, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org with your "expression of interest". An information sheet will be sent to you ASAP.
