LOCUS is a gallery show that marries visual and literary artists in a blind pairing artistic experiment.
LOCUS: V submissions are now open for visual + literary artists!
The LOCUS: V structure will follow closely to the structure implemented during the LOCUS: IV gallery show. Please reference the link should you need examples or understanding of the finished show.
LOCUS: V structure will be as follows:
Submission period for all artists is October 5th - October 16th. All artists will be notified with show status by or before October 19th when the show timeline will begin.
Visual artists will have until November 9th to complete and deliver a work for the show (it may be a new or existing work)
Visual artwork is then blindly shared (no work title or details or artist reveal) with a paired literary artist who has until November 13th to video record and deliver a short reaction to the work.
Literary artists then have until November 30th to complete and deliver a new work in response to, inspired by, in communication with, or any other interpretation of the work, as well as a recorded voice memo of the work.
Literary work is then blindly shared back to the visual artist who has until December 4th to video record and deliver a short reaction to the work.
Literary + Visual artists will be given an interview form about the work and their experience, to be completed by December 8th.
LOCUS: V will launch on December 10th and all pairings will be revealed!
LOCUS: V will “close” on December 19th.
Regarding compensation: at this time no compensation is directly offered to participating artists. All artists if they choose will have Venmo / PayPal handles listed for tips and audience compensation. Any artwork sold during the show while assisted by the curator, is profit kept by the artist 100%. Donations will be collected for the show itself, split between the LOCUS team and amenities and our organization partner for this event: Free Write Arts & Literacy.
By submitting to be considered for the show, you agree to all terms and deadlines above. Have any questions? E-mail today!
