Call for artists. URBAN ART 08

Artmix Cultural Association announces a call to artists for the second edition of URBAN ART, which will take place September 20, 2008, in Bucharest, as part of the Bucharest White Night, organized by ArCuB and the Bucharest City Hall.

URBAN ART is an architectural projections festival that proposes the display of contemporary works of art in the public space of the city as site-specific interventions that communicate with the architecture of the buildings, transforming the environment they occupy for one night. The challenge of URBAN ART consists in the reference to the context, as the artwork is created as a fluid membrane to envelope the building like a second skin. Urban Art explores the public space and wishes to create a context for the reinterpretation of the urban environment and for the reactivation of spaces through art.

The applications session is opened to all visual artists who want to participate with creative ideas to transform the public space of Bucharest by means of their artworks. We are open to any artistic genre, as long as the artworks proposed are created in the last year, haven’t been displayed in other exhibitions and can be digitally adapted for their projection on buildings. The artworks proposed may be still images, but also video with sound.

The artists who want to participate can send their CV accompanied by three pictures of recent artworks by the August 7, 2008 to Please also send your contact information so we can contact you in case you will be selected for participation.

Deadline: August 7, 2008
