Open Art Call: "BoundLess" Group Exhibition

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Amateurs of contemporary art,

Check out this open call for (free) participation in the project of Jan Christensen, within the "BoundLess" group exhibition in Stenersenmuseet, Oslo, Norway, curated by Henry Meyric Hughes. I think it's a very good project in that kind of an institutional context.

Please send your material / questions directly to: jan_b_christensen@yahoo.com

For informations about my Artinfo-l mailing list and how to unsubscribe, please have a look at the end of this mail.

Best wishes, Kristofer Paetau


This is an open call for contributing material to a project intended for a group show in Stenersenmuseet, Oslo, Norway, curated by Henry Meyric Hughes. The show is scheduled to open in February, 2005.

I have been invited as a participating artist for the show "BoundLess", which has a theme based on the idea of artists travelling, creating networks of affiliated people and the notion that creativity is relative and subject to your meetings and subsequent inspirations.

I would like to open this up further by inviting ANYBODY to submit material such as text or images - or both - which will fit on a sheet of A4 in black and white. It could be a text, an article, a drawing, a note, a photograph or whatever. Your material will be included in the show as a reproduction, without any restrictions or censorship, and I will furthermore make an effort to reproduce selected images and illustrations (blown up as posters or painted up as some sort of background decoration), as a backdrop to the show. I will even try to execute any instructions you supply, to the best of my ability. There is no limit to the number of pieces you submit, but please note that each work of art should be limited to a single sheet of paper.

Please pass this on to ANYBODY you might think would find it interesting.

You may credit this show as a group show, in which you participate by your involvement in this installation, though I can not guarantee that details regarding each participant will be included for additional printed matter, apart from what I will myself produce, as part of the show, which will be some sort of printed document consisting of all contributions, including credits (names only,) and, hopefully, a poster. The complete document will then be available for download as a PDF from my homepage Jan Christensen

I will respond personally to every contributor with detailed information regarding the exhibition. Please note that there will not be any fees or reimbursements included for participants to this project.

Please be aware that copyrights will not be respected. Popular culture is founded on appropriation.

This sounds very, very interesting, Thivai. Do you know these people, or much about them?

Not "personally" ... we discussed similar interests and they mail me announcements ... the problem is we have this big pond in-between us and I'm too broke (and have no time) to travel (hopefully that will change soon and I can drop in on the contacts around the world)

They seem to be reputable in that they are consistently producing exhibits (they send me notices and images from their works)
