Le Flash 2009 invites proposals for experimental site work and performance by independent artists. Accepted projects will be installed/performed from dawn to dusk on October 2, 2009.
Proposals must center on light. Le Flash asks artists to:
Imagine light as a solid, a liquid or a vapor elemental to your project! Think of light through an experimental lens, as a reflection or as a projection. Show us how you can animate and energize one space or a whole neighborhood!
Artists are specifically requested to:
1. Site their work and obtain permission from the property owner
2. Address safety issues and the potential for inclement weather
3. Locate and secure electrical and water hook-ups, if needed
4. Be dynamic and prepared to express the essence of Le Flash!
Most projects will be self-funded and self-produced. However, at their discretion, curators Cathy Byrd and Stuart Keeler will award modest stipends to support the production of a limited number of ambitious proposals with budgets that exceed the artist’s ability to self-fund.
