Invitation to artists to participate in the project Radio As An Arts Space (deadline June 25, 2011)
In the frame of the project Radio As An Arts Space, Cona is sending out an open call for submission of contemporary sound art and radio art works. Artists and art groups creating in the area of radio art and sound art are invited to apply with existing or new works.
Selected works will be included in the exhibition Radio As An Arts Space which will be broadcasted and streamed by radioCona, and will appear at in situ locations in December 2011. The exhibition will at the same time occupy the radio frequencies and audio streams of international partners. The broadcast will be constituted as a gallery space with a curated exhibition delineated by the curators’ collection of selected works and featuring works selected through this open call.
About the project Radio As an Arts Space:
The title that defines the activities of art project radioCona – a project temporary radio station for contemporary arts intentionally bears the name of the space Radio As An Art Space. A project with such a name forms and structures exhibiting of contemporary art works that fall into the fields of radio art and sound art. Radio As An Arts Space investigates the possibilities of a constitution of an international radio project model for artistic contents and exchange of audio works. Our aim is to stimulate discourse about the production of radiophonic art projects and discursive artistic contents among expert audiences, artists and art organisations. The project Radio As An Arts Space will examine how a radio frequency can become a gallery space for contemporary art and analyse the constitution of a format of temporary radio broadcasting, as one of the options.
