call for artists: video, film & electronic art

4Culture seeks media artworks for e4c, a storefront gallery for electronic art. Visible by foot, bike, car or bus to more than 20,000 people each day (seriously, we checked the stats), e4c exhibits selected artworks from regional and national artists, on rotation, from 7 am – 10 am, daily.

Up to sixteen media works or proposals will be selected for presentation for a period of up to one year. Due to the transitory nature of the audience, pieces between 1-5 minutes are desired. Media artists, residing in the US, working in all genres are encouraged to apply.

The deadline to apply is May 26, 2010 (5 p.m. PST) and application guidelines are currently available.

e4c is located adjacent to Gallery4Culture facing Prefontaine Place South in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood. e4c consists of four, LCD monitors and two speakers mounted to face the exterior of the building, broadcasting sights and sounds to passers-by.

Selected artists will work with the e4c program manager to adapt selected work for optimal presentation. e4c utilizes software with a timeline interface, which is distributed through a network to the display monitors and speakers. The selected artists will also work with the e4c program manager to create promotional materials. Each selected artist will receive a modest honorarium to help defray expenses. The artists retain all rights of the works submitted.

This project received generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
