forwarded from Stella Gray:
GUILDFORD LANE GALLERY invites artists, curators and individuals to submit
their ideas for THE WEDNESDAY PROJECT. We have dates available in the
near future so don’t delay!
What is The Wednesday Project?
The Project is a weekly event held amongst the exhibitions at Guildford Lane
Gallery with the intention of fostering marginal, peripheral and/or ephemeral art forms, as well as critical forums. It encourages exploration and collaboration; cross-discipline, cross-genre, cross-media, you name it!
To give you an idea of its scope, the Wednesday Projects thus far has involved
experimental music, sound, sculpture, installation and performance. It could also include lectures, performance poetry, philosophical discussions, screenings, contemporary dance or live artworks.
Does your idea fit The Wednesday Project? Most likely!
Criteria for Inclusion:
• Collaborative and/or Mixed Media works preferred
• Well-constructed for an audience; timing and performance/presentation
methods for each event must be planned accordingly. This does not
mean highly finished, works in progress are fine, particularly if you are
seeking audience interaction/feedback.
Each programmer is encouraged to produce a series of Wednesday evenings, usually held one month apart. This requires that the presentation progresses or changes in some way, so that you are not presenting a repeat performance each event. The series may include 3 – 6 events. Consideration will be given to projects that request consecutive weeks programming or other scheduling requirements.
How does it work?
The Gallery and its incredible team of volunteers provide the following in-kind
• A space amongst an exhibition on 1 of the 3 floors
• PA Equipment (an in-house operator will be available for a fee of $22/hour), HD projector & DVD players (subject to booking)
• Electronic publicity & a simple hard copy flyer
• A pay bar
• Door staff
Programmers/artists are responsible for producing their event from start to finish and conducting some publicity. Please note, the Gallery does not pay
artists/programmer fees, nor reimburse for costs associated with running a
Wednesday Project event. Programmers may request a donation door entry
from the audience, not exceeding $5. In addition, programmers are asked to put down a $300 insurance deposit.
The gallery is open mon-fri 10-6 and you are encouraged to come in and check out the spaces. Feel free to test the acoustic and make some noise too! Just let us know when you plan to drop in.
It is important to remember that Projects occur amongst exhibitions, which
requires some flexibility. If you have particular requirements that may impinge on this aspect please specify these elements in your proposal.
Submissions should include:
• Conceptual description
• Physical description (appearance, materials and equipment included)
• Equipment required (please specify whether already acquired or not)
• Relevant support material (images, video, audio, etc.)
• 1st and 2nd preferences of dates (all Wednesdays of course!)
We look forward to hearing from you!!
