Art in Odd Places (AiOP) 2024: CARE

October 18-20, 14th Street New York City


Art in Odd Places (AiOP) is pleased to announce the dates, curators, and theme of the nineteenth edition of the iconic public visual and performance art festival that takes place along 14th Street in Manhattan every fall. AiOP 2024: CARE will take place October 18-20, 2024, and will be curated by Patricia Miranda and Christopher Kaczmarek. Artists, performers, agitators, and caretakers are invited to apply as individuals, collectives, and collaborators interested in proposing projects that invite the public to stop, to rest, to consider, and, above all, to care.

Care is a ripple. From intimate to global, from self-care, care of family and lover, friend and neighbor, town and city, state and country, the global world, care undulates out to our whole island planet and every species upon it. To care is to look after, provide for, to watch over, to grieve, to lament, to cry, to feel concern, to attach importance. In a year of political turmoil, war, and environmental devastation, how wide can our caring arms be embraced? Who can we give care to? What can we care about? What can we watch over? What and who can we be careful about? Who is deemed worthy of care? What is appropriate care? When is care invasive? Should we care? Can we not care? Do we have that luxury? How can we give protective attention, caution, concern, and prudence? Can we extend care beyond our bodily, familial, national, species, and earthly borders? AiOP 2024 asks how art can create spaces and actions of compassionate fearless care. Can we offer and enter them with joy and love?
