The Outlet Dance Project seeks short dance-films that not only show excellence in the genre, but also have connections to site-specificity, architecture, and/or sculpture as well. The festival is open to filmmakers and choreographers everywhere who identify or have identified as women.

Now in its 15th year, the festival features site-specific choreography & dance films and takes place at the internationally renowned sculpture park, Grounds For Sculpture.

Studio Montclair Call for Entries: Everyday Objects

Artistic field:

Country:

Eligibility:

Everyday Objects:
Every day we are surrounded by objects that we have relationships with – physical relationships, psychological relationships, sensory relationships. These objects carry a history and a set of meanings that we sometimes share collectively and other times are extremely personal to our individual experiences. Found-object artists investigate these relationships; exploring the inherent beauty in objects and how these objects can have meaning shared by the collective memory of our culture/society.

The formal history of found-object art can be traced back to the Dada and Surrealist movements of the 1910s-1940s, characterized by the reuse of commercial imagery and appropriation of cultural iconography of the Pop artists, and used more recently by such artists as Carl Andre, Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, and Willie Cole. 

For "Everyday Objects,” Studio Montclair is looking for artwork that celebrates the found object.  Preference will be given to works that incorporate actual everyday objects into collage, sculpture, or industrial design. In a more limited number, drawings, paintings and other mediums will be considered for inclusion in this exhibit.

Curator: 

M. Gosser is the chief curator and gallery director of the College of Architecture and Design at NJIT. He also runs Art & Artifacts of Newark, a downtown gallery celebrating Newark’s resurgence. He is the vice-president of Newark Landmarks, a preservation and community activist organization, and serves on the executive board of the Jewish Museum of New Jersey.  In his earlier careers, Gosser was an architect, urban planner, photographer, sculptor and installation artist.
