Call for Submissions: Research Project #16

Submitted by norasharp on Thu, 02/08/2018 - 12:28am

We are now seeking submissions for Research Project #16, taking place Sunday, March 25, 2018. The deadline to submit is March 1.

Research Project is a low-tech, bimonthly works-in-progress performance series hosted by OuterSpace Studios. RP brings together artists in the midst of their creative processes to show work, share process, give & receive responses, and chew the fat. This opportunity provides a community forum for experimentation, emerging ideas, and artist-to-peer support. We welcome artists and their work at any phase in their careers and processes.

Research Project is coordinated by Nora Sharp and Aurora Tabar with the support of OuterSpace & The Watering Can Dance. RP was started by Greer Dworman in 2014.

If you’re interested in showing work, please know and send along the following:

– RP is shaped to serve movement-based artists, though we encourage a broad view of this language.

– Please send us a brief description of the work you wish to share, where you are in your process, and what you hope to gain from this in-progress opportunity. What are you looking for from your audience?

– If possible, please send a link to a brief work sample reflecting your current research.

– Please let us know the length of time that would best serve your needs in showing. We seek a balance that works for all present.

Artists for whom we can make space will be notified by March 12 and will present their work on March 25 at 7pm at OuterSpace Studios, 1474 N. Milwaukee, 3rd Floor in Wicker Park, Chicago. We regret that there is not an elevator available at this space.
