Call for Proposals for new TINT & Watermans Exhibition

OPEN CALL: an exhibition of open source, hacking and modding

Location: Watermans Arts Centre, London
Exhibition dates: September & October 2010

TINT in collaboration with Watermans Art Centre in London is organising an exhibition of Media Art using Floss (Free/libre/open source software) as well as hacking, modding and DIY projects.

We are looking for artists who are striving to make something expressive and artistically engaging with the deluge of technologies in the networks, mobile phones, gadgets and toys. This could include coding and hardware projects, which have either been built using free software or hardware, or have been created by modifying an existing device to produce a hybrid mutilation, or a completely new object in it’s own right. Selected artists will be exhibiting alongside some of the leading hacking and open source artists and collectives in the UK, such as The Owl Project, Genetic Moo, Tine Bech, Michael Zeltner, Alex Zivanovic, Alex McLean, Peter Forde and more.

Parallel to the main exhibition at the Watermans Art Centre an event will be held to coincide with the London Digital Week on 21st – 27th September 2010. This will allow some of the artists to talk about their work and present a program of workshops in opensource hardware/software.

Deadline: Monday 29th March 2010
Please send a project outline with sketches, artists statement and CV to: info@tintarts.org

We will get back to everyone by the 14th April 2010. If you have any questions please email us at: info@tintarts.org.
