Call: Mash-ups [us Lake Forest, IL]

4210__w9z5645_dd0ab793d1de48018fe553831bfcc4d7.jpgCall for Mash-ups :: To be exhibited February 24, 2010 – April 1, 2010 :: at the Sonnenschein and Albright Galleries, Durand Art Institute Building on the campus of Lake Forest College, IL, USA :: Deadline: 6 January 2011 ::

Contemporary art has seen a marked increase in practices that defy traditional descriptions of media. Categories like painting, drawing, sculpture and photography no longer suffice to describe the full range of processes and forms that artists engage. Even relatively newer media categories like conceptual art, video art and performance art cannot encompass what many artists today do in their studios and in the streets. Many artists approach subject matter conceptually or thematically, choosing materials, processes and forms that resonate with a particular theme, while others complicate formal concerns directly by working through and across many media at once, or sequentially, arriving at products that resist easy categorization. Contemporary music has also seen a rise in the combining of musical practices and genre; even of individual pre-existing songs. Akin to the post-modern visual art strategy of combines today’s pop mash-ups take elements from two or more forms and slam them together, creating a new synthesis of musical sounds. Theorists often simply create new categories to deal with this phenomenon, although another solution is the acknowledgement that the slippery liminal ground between definitions is a place unto itself: Intermedia.

The upcoming exhibition Mash-ups seeks to display a group of creative work that defies categorization by medium. We invite proposal submissions from artists in any field, including but not limited to variations of traditional visual arts practices, music and sound, film and video, performance and relational forms, and new media.

The exhibition will take place from February 24-April 1 in the Sonnenschein and Albright Galleries in the Durand Art Institute Building on the campus of Lake Forest College.

There will be an opening reception on Thursday, February 24 from 7:30-9:00 in the evening.
